In western states like Idaho, experiencing the outdoors as a family is part of everyday life. But in other places in the country, that isn't the case.

In this special presentation of HumaNature from Wyoming Public Media, we follow the story of a woman who wanted her children to love the outdoors, just like she did as a little girl in Sweden. But when she moved to the U.S., she found out it wasn’t quite that simple.
