Filmmaker: Nadia Gill 11 Mins
Ben Depp, a landscape photographer, has set out to chronicle the wetlands in a series of high-art aerial photographs that he captures with the help of his 21-foot paragliding wing and 200HP motor driven propeller that he straps to his back. From above he has become acutely aware of the vast network of pipeline canals which are reportedly responsible for up to 30% of the land loss. In this episode we take a trip to the barrier islands where Ben flies his glider and observes the recent restoration that the state has put into rebuilding the land in this area.
Filmmaker: Anthony Cupaiuolo 5 Mins
Every day (and, we mean every day) you can see Daniel riding his bike along Highway 50. And, while he's out there, he's picking up trash and doing his part to make the Lake Tahoe area better for everyone. That is an amazing story in and of itself. But it is even more incredible when you learn that Daniel nearly died as a child from a fall and was in a coma for 8 months, and although he still suffers from traumatic brain injury (TBI), that hasn't stopped him from making a difference.

Filmmaker: DJ O'Neil 4 Mins
Every nine minutes, the weight of a blue whale (300,000 pounds) in plastic makes its way into our ocean.

Certified by Guinness World Records, the whale is the largest sculpture of its kind ever built.

Suspended in the airy expanse between heaven and Earth, highliners walk a thin, wiggly piece of nylon webbing that's been rigged between two points, very high up. 'Wave Hands Like Clouds' is an ode to finding focus and balance in a moment of exposed vulnerability that leaves the viewer breathless.

In 2002, mountain bikers and entrepreneurs Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller moved to Fruita, Colorado, in search of cheap rent, world-class single track, and free time to ride.

In an effort to address this issue, Detroit Hives has been purchasing vacant lots and converting them into buzzing bee farms.

An ode to the athlete who relishes in getting dirty, who chuckles after a long day in the mountains, effortlessly glides through the crystal clear waves and most importantly, is unapologetic in pursuing their love of getting rowdy in adventures. Director Krystle Wright brings this next installment since the wild things never stopped playing.
Filmmaker: Avery Caudill 9 Mins
Fourth-grade students from Palouse Prairie Charter School (PPCS) in Idaho share their experience building Blooming Culture, a canoe that combines European and Indigenous styles.

Set a couple of decades from now, 'A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' is a flat-out rejection of the idea that a dystopian future is a forgone conclusion. Instead, it offers a thought experiment: What if we decided not to drive off the climate cliff? What if we chose to radically change course and save both our habitat and ourselves? What if we actually pulled off a Green New Deal? What would the future look like then?
Filmmaker: Brandon Moore 1 Min
Visceral imagery, emotional score, and a powerful speech by John F. Kennedy underscore a timeless theme: we come from the sea. 'In Your Hands' invites viewers to look inward and rediscover our connection with - and responsibility to - the natural world.
