This is documentary about conservation icon and author Bert Raynes. It's also a 3-part love story involving Bert and his wife Meg, their love for Jackson Hole, Wyo., and their love for the environment. With a keen intellect, sharp wit and a twinkle in his eye, Bert has been inspiring the people of Jackson Hole to observe and care about their wild neighbors for more than 40 years. Introduced to the outdoors by his wife Meg in their 20s, the urban dweller became active in a variety of environmental causes over the course of his marriage.
In 1972, the couple retired to Jackson Hole and in 1976, Bert founded the Jackson Hole Bird Club and soon after began writing a weekly wildlife column for the Jackson Hole News. The couple also performed boots-on-the-ground restoration of habitats in Jackson Hole, which eventually led to the creation of the Meg and Bert Raynes Wildlife Fund.
The documentary also introduces several of the programs and projects Bert has helped moved forward - from nature mapping training for civilians to studying the Curlew bird. Young, old and ages in-between flock to this 91-year-old to discover how to become better stewards of the natural world. It shares Bert's vision for how citizen scientists can play a meaningful role, working in tandem with experts in caring for the wild places loved by all.
