Rey and Jerry Wood Canoeing the Wakulla River

Rey and Jerry Wood Canoeing the Wakulla River

Date
1940 (circa)
Description
This film shows a couple paddling what appears to be a homemade boat or canoe. According to the film’s intertitles, the couple is Rey and Jerry Wood, “two youthful adventurers paddling their way from California to New York City.” The film shows the pair paddling through the “scenic jungle” of the Wakulla River and into Wakulla Springs. Promoter and expert swimmer Newt Perry dives from a high platform into the spring. He swims to the boat and invites Jerry to take a dip. Jerry removes his pants to reveal a bathing suit and dives in. Newt Perry offers Jerry his diving mask, and they take turns going under water until Jerry returns to the boat, giving thanks and waving goodbye.
Rey and Jerry paddle back onto the river and through lush, tree-canopied areas. Jerry smokes his pipe as they paddle through swampy grasses. The last intertitle reads, “They reluctantly paddle down the river to the gulf and more adventure carrying with them plenty of material for a chapter on the Wakulla Springs in their new book.”

This Good Land We Love! The Story of Wildlife Conservation and the Edward Ball Wildlife Foundation

This Good Land We Love! The Story of Wildlife Conservation and the Edward Ball Wildlife Foundation

Date
1972 (circa)
Description
Edward Ball was the longtime associate and brother-in-law of financier Alfred I. Dupont. He became trustee and manager of the Dupont Estates as well as leader of the St. Joe Paper Corporation in North Florida. This narrated film includes color footage and descriptions of four Florida wildlife sanctuaries created by the Edward Ball Wildlife Foundation.

The film begins with a reading of Joyce Kilmer's poem "Trees" over scenes of wildlife, including geese and other birds, followed by shots of Edward Ball strolling through a wooded area. The narrator describes Ball's belief in the importance of preserving endangered animal and plant species as well as his admiration for Teddy Roosevelt and forester, politician and conservationist Gifford Pinchot.

The film continues with visits to each wildlife sanctuary, including the University of West Florida near Pensacola, Wakulla Springs near St. Marks, the Box R Ranch near Apalachicola and Southwood Farms near Tallahassee. Students and school groups enjoy nature at UWF, where a tour for the visually impaired takes place. The Wakulla Springs segment includes exterior shots of the Wakulla Springs Lodge and wildlife boat tours. Wild geese and deer figure prominently throughout the film, which also includes scenes of limpkins, egrets, ducks, raccoons and alligators foraging for food. An alligator catches and eats a duck.

Most scenes are backed by lush music while the narrator describes the feeding habits of animals and the work of foundation employees. Throughout the film, the narrator reiterates Edward Ball's belief that pristine lands, wildlife species and the "natural wonders of the world" must be preserved for the understanding and enjoyment of future generations. The film concludes with quotes about man's place in nature and a quote from the book of Revelations: "Hurt not the Earth." This film was produced by John Appleyard Agency Inc.

1973
Description
This film shows two men motoring down the Wakulla River, towing a camera person in a smaller boat. Footage shows wildlife along the river, including anhingas, limpkins, egrets, alligators and turtles. A giant hornet nest hangs high up in a tree. Underwater footage in the shallow areas of the river includes a shot of a turtle as it dives into the water to make its escape.

The men in the boats make their way down to a fence that Ed Ball erected to block access up river to Wakulla Springs. A man near County Road 365, next to a bridge and boat ramp, points out trash and debris left behind in the area. Next, the film moves to scuba diving scenes at the cavern entrance to the springs. Divers with lights descend and enter the cavern. Once inside, they measure a mastodon bone. The footage shows them swimming near underwater pipes. An overhead shot shows a glass bottom boat filled with tourists snapping pictures of the divers. Various fish, including largemouth bass, Florida gar, mullet and American eel, swim through the water.
