Join this small northern community of scientists and their friends as they try to carry on their work in bogs and dunes, forests and streams, while dealing with the mysterious barriers to travel, an uncertain future, spectacular northern lights, and a sudden corpse. More
This saga of research, suspense, strangeness, and the occasional corpse is dripping with biology, frights, friendship, humor, great scenery, goofiness, rants, and more science than most people see in months.
We travel to hidden, sometimes wet, frequently scenic locales with biologist Kelly, assistant Jake, and Swampdog as they try to start a normal research season in the rapidly disappearing Northern Michigan bogs.
After a horrific morning, they return home to the Institute, where their small community is grappling with mysteries, lunch, dangerous secrets, conflicting theories, and plans about how to survive and comprehend the almost invisible and completely impassible fences have suddenly appeared all over the planet.
Then it really gets crazy.
