Starting with the plight of one tiny animal called Marmots, we expand our perspective to include ancient old-growth forests and learn how the future of both are connected. We then pivot slightly to view forests as places of sustenance for all, and pick up a few hiking tips including how to select the right cane / stick for the job.
