U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) video producer Stephen Wessells was recently awarded a First Place 2004 Silver Telly—in the documentary category for broadcast and cable television programs—for the USGS video product "Delta Revival: Restoring a California Ecosystem." Wessells produced and directed the 22-minute television program, first broadcast in August 2003 and nonspecifically scheduled for future broadcasts throughout central California. The program shows scientists from many disciplines working together to guide the unprecedented restoration of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem east of San Francisco Bay by attempting to understand ecosystem responses to toxic contaminants, invasive species, and water diversions.

The Telly Awards annually showcases the best work of the world's most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments and is a widely known and highly respected national and international competition, receiving more than 10,000 global entries annually (visit the Telly Web site for more information and for lists of past and current winners). "Delta Revival" also recently received the first-place award in the documentary category from the National Association of Government Communicators.

Copies of "Delta Revival" are available on DVD to teachers who wish to use the program in courses on aquatic or environmental science at the middle-school, high-school, or lower-division undergraduate level; please send inquires to Jim Cloern.
