We join scientists at work to see how drones are changing the way field research is done. With climate change taking a toll on the region’s oysters, some shellfish farmers are looking to a native grass to help. A peaceful retreat in the woods, called The Shire, played an outsized role in the preservation of the Columbia River Gorge. And enjoy a stunning photoessay of the Valley of The Giants.
