My Story

Dakota Altman grew up in the North Bottoms of Lincoln, Nebraska, where he first fell in love with nature. Family trips in the summers took him across the vast western states through some truly beautiful landscapes. Dakota always yearned to live somewhere else; but all along his home had been waiting, tugging him closer, revealing ever so slowly the fascinations of our unique natural world. Dakota answered that call, and as a graduate student studying to become a conservation storyteller at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln he works as a producer for Platte Basin Timelapse. Dakota’s current work is focused on a section of the Nebraska Wetlands Guide. He hopes that by sharing what makes a place special, others will be in awe of the beauty right under their noses.
