Something Wild

Something Wild has been exploring the wonder of the landscape that surrounds us in New Hampshire for over 20 years

From the many birds that call our state home to the trees around New Hampshire that have been granted "Big Trees" status to stone walls that perforate the state, we explain the behavior and science behind what we see and hear and might take for granted in our backyards.

Something Wild is produced by Emily Quirk.
