Blog : Celebrating Ten Wild Years

By Corey | Feb 26, 2015 | in

New Hampshire Public Television is celebrating ten years and seasons of Windows to the Wild, an outdoor series that follows adventurer Willem Lange as he hikes, paddles and explores New England's wild. An avid outdoorsman, Lange has worked as a ranch hand, Adirondack guide, and director of the Dartmouth Outward Bound Center. Lange offers insights into the history, ecology and special character of each place visited, giving viewers quiet moments to reflect on the beauty and splendor of the natural world. Windows to the Wild takes viewers outdoors and to New England's best natural places, in hopes to exemplify how the beauty of nature can be seen just outside a window. Whether it's canoeing down the Connecticut, taking on Acadia's Great Head Trail, or traveling to the waterfalls of the White Mountains, Lange transports viewers into his world of the great outdoors. 

On Wednesday March 4 at 7:30 PM, the Windows to the Wild 10th Anniversary Special will have clips from Lange's adventures over the years and much more. Not only will this television event celebrate 10 years of adventures with Lange, but it is also celebrates Lange's 80th birthday! NHPTV is also giving viewers the opportunity to bid on a chance to join Lange and the Windows to the Wild producers on a hike. NHPTV members will recieve Lange's new book Words from the Wild, with stories inspired by Windows to the Wild adventures, a special 2-DVD set of eight favorite shows, and a trademark hiking bandana through a one-time donation to the program.
