Secret Pond: A Fairy Shrimp Documentary
Naturalist and filmmaker Brian La Fountain has been fascinated with fairy shrimp - tiny crustaceans that live in seasonal ponds - since he was a boy. With Sweet Briar’s naturalist-in-residence, Mike Hayslett, as his guide to the hidden places where they live, La Fountain finally discovered the elusive critters in the wild and captured them in incredible high-definition detail. Created in part to raise awareness for the protection of the fairy shrimp’s vulnerable habitat, “Secret Pond” is a surprisingly poignant portrayal of the microcosmic world of these delicate creatures. Fairy Shrimp have been found in two locations in Loudoun so far - perhaps they live in a vernal pool near you! Join us for this free showing on the big screen!
