Blog : Local TV Station brings you into the Wild

By Mike | Jan 21, 2015 | in

Every Wednesday night NHPTV airs "Windows to the Wild," an award-winning documentary where outdoor adventurer Willem Lange paddles, hikes, and explores his way throughout New England. On tonight’s episode Will ventures off into Ride the Wilds, a series of trails up in Coos County made for hikes, horseback rides, and off-roading. The trails that make up Ride the Wilds- spanning from Lancaster to Pittsburg then down to Berlin- motivate people to get out in nature as well as boost economic development.

"Ride the Wilds" airs tonight at 7:30 p.m. on NHPTV PRIME. If you miss it, all episodes are available online to nhptv.org the day after they premiere. You can also read all about Will’s adventures in his column A Yankee Notebook. To keep Will going on the trail, you can donate to NHPTV by clicking here.

NHPTV- the only state-wide locally owned station in New Hampshire- is headquartered in Durham and provides educational programming to 98% of the state, peaking at about a million viewers every month (90,000 of which are children). The station also partners with local community organizations to raise awareness on issues such as the environment, literacy, and childhood obesity.

NHPTV also has a strong commitment to environmental-themed programming, ranging from national hits ( "Nature," " Nova") to local favorites ("Planet Granite," "Growing a Greener World," "Mother Nature’s Child"). By providing programming that is equally entertaining and educational, NHPTV has long advocated an appreciation for our state’s unique beauty and history.
