This docuseries is a love letter to Angeles National Forest, also known as ANF and California State Landmark #717. One can easily observe power struggles between civilization and Mother Nature in this forest, where society is so deeply integrated. Our aim is to share interesting information, images, and stories that inform even the savviest, and ultimately to promote responsible and sustainable use of our beloved forests so they may provide inspiration, humility, and peace to future generations in the conditions they exist in today (if not better).
