American Experience | Poisoned Ground (Chapter One)

In the late 1970s, residents of Love Canal discovered their neighborhood had been built on a former chemical waste dump. Housewives activated to create a movement that galvanized the landmark Superfund Bill.

Independent Lens: A Thousand Pines

Over the course of a grueling eight months, a crew of Oaxacan guest workers plant trees throughout the United States. This intimate portrait shows how hard it is to balance the physical demands of reforestation and extreme isolation while staying connected to the family back home.
Nature | Treasures of the Caribbean

A story of hope in troubling times. The discovery of a coral reef in Belize and Guatemala, larger than the size of Manhattan, marks a new chapter in understanding corals and fish that depend on each other and in saving coral reefs worldwide.

Adaptation: Floating Gardens of Bangladesh

ADAPTATION begins in the lush deltas of Bangladesh, where Alizé journeys for her research. Here she learns how communities are adapting to changing monsoons and dangerous sea level rise. Floating gardens and floating schools are just the start of some of the country’s innovative strategies.

Conexión elevates stories of Latinos across New England who spend time outdoors in ways that inspire a deeper connection with others, their heritage, and nature itself.
