Ethan Sheets manages the REI Co-op in Cleveland, Ohio, and feels most at home in the Midwest woods with his son Finn. Born with a cerebral palsy, Finn is unable to walk, feed himself or communicate with words. That hasn’t stopped this father and son duo from understanding each other through their outdoor adventures.
Run to Be Visible
For soil microbiologist Lydia Jennings, PhD, the inspiration to complete a 50-mile solo run came from a place that went beyond the selfish or the personal — it was about celebration and gratitude. Dr. Jennings, a member of the Huichol (Wixaritari) and Pascua Yaqui (Yoeme) Nations, took on this 50-mile challenge as a way to celebrate earning her PhD after her graduation ceremony was canceled due to COVID-19. At the same time, it was also a run of recognition and honoring those who came before her. She decided to dedicate each of the first 49 miles to an Indigenous scientist whose work she cited in her dissertation and the last mile to the Indigenous scholars of the future.
FEATURE FILM: Hidden Wild
Behind the homes and freeways of suburban Palm Beach County, an incredible network of swamps, scrub, and waterways lies waiting to be discovered. Join science educator Alex Freeze as she takes three South Florida students on an expedition to discover the wilderness hidden in their own backyards.
Plus, three short films highlighting work of the Center:
