The schism between the general public and natural resources appears to be growing every day. As urban centers develop and technology continues to proliferate, it will be imperative that we educate and engage future generations of natural resource users. Outdoor recreation and outdoor heritage were once an inherent part of American life, but these fundamental pleasures are no longer essential to a growing demographic in the US. This video show, and the movement that we hope to create, will educate and challenge individuals to be informed about natural resource subjects, connect with other people and go out and engage with the natural world around them.
The show will consist primarily of the host (Outdoor Josh - Josh Seehorn) delivering succinct information on a variety of natural resource related issues. Some example subjects may include: management, research, industries, institutions, agencies, politics, activism, wildlife, forestry, aquatic ecology, soils, air, climate change, renewable energy etc.
In addition to the primary content (15-30 minutes), longer-form interviews (1hr +) may dive deeper into various subjects.
