Starting east of Chino Valley, area resident Gary Beverly hiked 30 miles up the Upper Verde in May, 2008 to document damage from off-road vehicles (ORVs) and trash he'd been seeing while volunteering with the Sierra Club Water Sentinels. Beverly made this short documentary about his trip. "The movie is supposed to show people what a beautiful place the Upper Verde is, and motivate them to do something," Beverly said.

You have, as much as possible, captured the natural beauty of this valuable resource. We need to insure the Verde is preserved and protected for future generations and particularly for the wildlife that depend on it.

Great video, thanks for sharing. It's wonderful to see parts of the Verde one doesn't often get to see along with the danger it faces.
