Under the leadership of Michael Meredith and Angie Langerin a group of teens ages 16 to 18 spent their summers working in the forest.  Some of the new skills they acquired included building bridges, creating paths over wetlands and trimming a lifetime's worth of privet.  My guests on this segment include:

  • Kim Coons - Park Ranger
