In 2002 a U.S. Forest Service study of the New York-New Jersey Highlands reported in no uncertain terms that accelerating development in this northeastern "green belt" would significantly compromise the Highlands water supply, a source of naturally clean water for millions of people in cities and suburbs along the coast. The Highlands Rediscovered explores what makes this region special by focusing on the natural history of the Highlands, as seen through the eyes of professionals who study and work there. Shot in High Definition video with an emphasis on recording the Highlands' physical attributes, this program is a visually captivating exploration of an under-appreciated wilderness surrounded by - and supplying water to - one of the most densely-populated areas in the nation.
