Geocaching is a high tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices.
In the state of Maine, there are almost 5,000 hidden treasures to be discovered. Mike Marino is a geocacher who takes the sport pretty seriously. He finds it hard to make it through a day without stopping here and there to hunt for a cache. He even holds a nationwide record for hiding the greatest number of caches in one day: 125. Follow Mike through the streets of Portland as he hunts for hidden treasure, and find out what makes a geocacher do what they do.
A sobering look at the passage of time.

Searching For Farming's Future in its Past is part of a series produced by Rachel Leventhal for the NRDC about the impact individuals can make on their world. Jonathan and Nina White own The Bobolink Dairy in Vernon, New Jersey. They make artisanal grass-fed cheese, wood-fired bread, give cheesemaking classes to agritourists, and are de-industrializing farming before our planet runs out of food - or are trying to. Lesson one: cows living on pasture instead of in feedlots know they're bigger than you. Operating in the black four out of their five years in business, the Whites have proven that sustainable farming can be profitable. But a bigger question looms: How do you make sustainable farming, well, sustainable?
