A trailer for "Far Afield: A Conservation Love Story." This documentary follows Bert Raynes from the "mean streets" of Jersey City, New Jersey to the "green streets" of Jackson, Wyoming. Along the way, Bert discovers the two great loves of his life: nature and Meg, his wife and muse. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Tetons, Meg and Bert foster a community of wildlife lovers, creating a force for nature.
"A skilled naturalist, defender of nature, and believer in the power of conservation and democracy, Bert Raynes gently urges us, young and old, to believe we can make a difference."
— Todd Wilkinson, Environmental Journalist and Author
