Wilderness Areas
Body: 

One of the greatest attractions to Vermont for locals as well as visitors is the abundance of wild places. The opportunity to view a wide diversity of wildlife, and explore an almost endless number of waterways is just minutes from anywhere in the state. And thanks to the Wilderness Act, which was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964, Vermont now has 8 wilderness areas that will be protected for future generations in perpetuity. We visited several of the Wilderness Areas to get a brief overview from staff members of the U.S. Forest Service.

Northwoods Trail
Body: 

Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom has long been known for its vast working forest and rugged remote mountains. Thanks to a partnership between landowners, the state and outdoor groups, it’s also becoming a destination for deep woods hiking. A group of young trail blazers with the Northwoods Stewardship Center are busy creating a new long distance hiking trail, which will stretch through one of the wildest corners of Vermont.

Kayak Fishing

One of the hottest trends in fishing are special kayaks built from the keel up just for anglers. And there’s no better spot to do some kayak fishing than on the Connecticut River.

Screening & discussion of POV: 15 to Life: Kenneth's Story. Does sentencing a teenager to life without parole serve our society well? The United States is the only country in the world that routinely condemns children to die in prison. This is the story of one of those children, now a young man, seeking a second chance in Florida. At age 15, Kenneth Young received four consecutive life sentences for a series of armed robberies. Imprisoned for more than a decade, he believed he would die behind bars. Now a U.S. Supreme Court decision could set him free. This film follows Young's struggle for redemption, revealing a justice system with thousands of young people serving sentences intended for society's most dangerous criminals.
