Torreya State Park After Hurricane Michael | One Year Later

Clip: Season 5 Episode 2 | 6m 19s Video has closed captioning.

We visit Torreya State Park one year after Hurricane Michael. Category 4 winds stripped much of the park's taller trees, which provided shade for many of the rare and endangered trees in the understory. The park's unique ecology was shaped by its unique geology, and in particular steephead ravines. This terrain also makes it difficult to clear trails and open it primitive campsites.
