As part of our series RadioNature, Maria Hinojosa takes her kids for a swim with their 75-year old grandmother at the ‘The Point’ in Lake Michigan. It’s where her mother took her as a child, and where today, three generations connect with nature and each other in profound ways.

This story is produced by Nusha Balyan and edited by Deborah George.

RadioNature is a year-long series that looks at how people of color connect with nature. Funding comes from the REI Foundation.
