Dive into this "tail" of walleye conservation, as our Into the Outdoors Adventure Team member, Zach, discovers the significance of this species culturally and environmentally. Zach talks with environmental experts, tribal members and state representatives to learn more about the threats walleyes are facing in today's changing climate.
On this journey, viewers will learn about the impacts of altered habitats, recreational fishing impacts, and the actions all stakeholders are taking to mitigate those impacts. Through collaboration efforts, tribal, state and federal agencies are working together to restore and support walleye populations in Wisconsin lakes.
So join us to learn how you can be part of the solution.
Why are women becoming the fastest growing segment of hunters in America today?
Their reasons for breaking the stereotype image of men in blaze orange range from connecting with nature, to harvesting their own quality food for their families. In fact, studies show that men mostly hunt to accomplish a “goal” (such as getting their buck) but women hunt for the many rewards they personally get from the entire “experience” of hunting.
Discover all the reasons why more women are hunting today as you watch a mother and daughter reveal how their personal journeys into hunting have shaped important parts of their lives as they also share how other women can become part of the new wave of… “women reshaping hunting and conservation”.
Boating safety courses are essential for teaching new boaters about the rules of the waterway and how to safely operate a boat, but there are some "unspoken rules" that all members of the boating community should know. From environmental responsibility to helping out your fellow boaters in need, responsible boating involves a lot more than just safety. Boating etiquette is something that is often learned through experience rather than in a classroom, so tag along with Captain Doug and his granddaughter as they head out on the Lake of the Ozarks to learn about proper boating etiquette.
For hundreds of years, the waterways of the United States have been utilized as a means of transportation. From historical navigation tools and methods used by Native Americans to modern instruments used to navigate our waterways today, we set out to learn how our relationship with the waterways has evolved. With the construction of levees, locks and dams, the structure of the river has changed to become more navigable, but this also means boaters must be equipped with the knowledge of how to navigate these potential obstacles. As our technology and methods have improved, our navigation knowledge must develop as well. Join us as we learn about the history of nautical navigation, from past to present, and how to safely navigate our waterways.
In this episode of Into the Outdoors, Adventure Team members Zach, Aubrey, Chloe and Charlie explore the changing energy industry and how some organizations are leading the way to a greener future.
From alternative energy-saving resources in the home to electrifying the transportation industry, our Adventure Team learns about lowering our individual carbon footprints.
But it doesn’t stop there!
Our team also learns about lowering the carbon footprint of entire communities through the greening of the electrical grid as well as investing in net zero designs for schools and businesses.
Tag along with us to see how the energy industry is flipping to switch to renewable energy!
Discover how a kid, his dad and grandpa use one of the oldest methods of fishing to catch 30 fish in a half hour in Alaska, America’s Last Frontier.
Besides sharing the family fun, this show reveals ecosystem science, aquatic biology, history and a first-hand look at the wildlife wonders in our nation’s largest National Forest.
What happens when a tire is no longer usable? Where does it go? Join Into the Outdoors
Adventure Team as we investigate sustainable solutions for scrap tires.
Every year over 300 million tires are discarded in the US. In the past, they were thrown into
landfills or dumped illegally. That’s a lot of waste! But today there are many ways scrap tires
can be reused or recycled. The ITO Adventure Team travels to Michigan, Colorado and
Minnesota to learn how scrap tire disposal is being managed. We learn why illegal dumping is
hazardous to human health and the environment.
In Minnesota, we learn about Tire-Derived Aggregate (TDA). It’s durable, light-weight,
permeable, and can be used in a variety of engineering and construction applications. It
prevents frost heaving, solves sinking soil issues, and can even be used to help clean storm-
In Michigan and Colorado, we discover several other products made from scrap tires. Tires can
be shredded into different sizes for use as landscaping, molded products, road coverings, and
more. It can also be processed into Tire-Derived Fuel, which provides even higher BTUs than
Sometimes environmental issues feel like mountains, but with creative ideas and working
together, we can make a difference! If we can find sustainable solutions for a material like
tires…what other environmental solutions can we come up with?!
When you hear conservation, you may think research, improving habitat and protecting wildlife, but shooting sports also are a driving force behind funding.
Archery, trap shooting, sporting clays, long-range shooting or simply target practice for fun, all help fund conservation efforts.
On this episode of Into the Outdoors, we will learn more about the different kinds of shooting sports and meet people whose lives have been changed/improved due to their involvement.
Our Adventure Team will highlight: Archery, Scholastic Shooting Sports, Firearm Ranges and Conservation.
They talk with a variety of environmental experts about the relationships with wolves in different ecosystems as well as the cultural significance to the Ojibwe tribe.
Viewers will learn along with Zach and Mya as they find out if the big bad wolf is actually bad or a big help to the environment.
In this Into the Outdoors episode, Adventure Team member, Zach, heads out into his community to learn more about sustainability and his role in creating a healthier environment.
He investigates the causal relationships among humans, wildlife and the environment to learn about human impact on our planet.
Viewers learn along with Zach as he talks with wildlife experts, volunteers and corporate professionals to learn about the importance of sustainability at the individual, community and corporate levels.
