Roughly Speaking episode 427:

Four acres of woodlands might not sound like much, but in the city of Baltimore it constitutes a forest. Fairwood Forest is a patch of huge trees along a ridge in the middle of a residential neighborhood in northeast Baltimore. Thousands of hawks visit its treetops every year. The non-profit Baltimore Green Space has been working with community organizations to acquire the land and save it from development.

On the show: A hike along Fairwood's trails with Miriam Avins, the organization's founder and executive director, and Katie Lautar, Baltimore Green Space's program director and director of its forest stewardship program. Check out photos from Fairwood on Dan's Facebook page.
