PART 1 "Ode to the frog"; frog poetry and froggy 'music' from from Bentley LeBaron. "The lost lagoon"; in a sheltered body of water in Vancouver's Stanley Park Estelle Taylor finds respite and calm and jazzy sounding ducks. "Mystery of the deep"; George Sirk loves getting close to whales but he wants more than a great photo. "The Loon crew"; scientists worry that heavy metals in lakes can threaten a loon's ability to reproduce. Testing for mercury means going out at night to capture a loon and get blood and feather samples. We join a professional "loon crew" on the south Oromocto lake in New Brunswick.
PART 2 "The poetry of the woods"; Teacher and poet Julie Berry takes a group of city kids on a nature walk and asks them to write poems about what they saw, some have never been in long grass or up close to strange looking creatures. Steve McGreevy is in the wilds of the Waterton Peace Park in Alberta with wires, amplifiers and recording devices to capture what a poet might call "celestial sounds" - Steve calls it "natural radio". Artist and photographer April Hickox goes out at night on Toronto Island to photograph the gaunt and ghost-like trees that hold memories of people and places she has lost.
