8 pm Wed., Nov. 13 on WKAR TV | From the wilds of Costa Rica to the suburbs of our own country, NATURE explores the difficulties of raising parrots, why some breeders and owners become rescuers, and conservation efforts in the wild.
Former state representative Mark Meadows has been thinking about hiking the Appalachian Trail for decades. This summer, he did it … well, about half of its 2,200 miles.
Meadows started his south to north hike in Georgia in March, expecting warmer weather than the sub-freezing overnight lows he encountered during the first week. He stopped for the season after about 100 days, in Maryland, with his son by his side for part of the time. He hopes to complete the rest of the hike next year.
