DL woman involved in Nat'l Geographic environmental films


As the executive director of Natural Innovations, Erika Johnson has long been involved with environmental issues on a local level.

But recently, the Detroit Lakes resident has been able to reach a more global audience, by filming a series of short documentary pieces for the National Geographic television show "Wild Chronicles."

The first segment in that series, "Forest Police," will air locally on PBS Channel 2 tonight (Sunday) at 7 p.m.
