Documentary Explores Extraordinary Effort to Restore Trashed Missouri Karst Caverns, Sinkholes

Ken Grush
Videographer Neil Rosenbaum, kneeling, with producer Denise Henderson Vaughn, holding light, shoots video in a cave underneath the city of Perryville, Missouri for "Karst in Perry County." Standing by is cave research scientist, Richard Young.

"Karst in Perry County" chronicles how politically divergent rural and urban residents are collaborating to restore hundreds of environmentally impaired sinkholes and caves in one of the most karst-rich regions of Missouri — for the sake of an endangered fish. The documentary is scripted and produced by independent filmmaker Denise Henderson Vaughn.

Jacqueline Froelich is an investigative reporter and news producer for Ozarks at Large.
