High in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in the middle of a majestic natural park, sits a small Natural History Museum and Gift Shop decorated to look like the forest outside. From within, Lee is trying to stop the development of the land. But when she enlists the help of an old friend, Lee invites more than memories into her refuge. The Nature Room is a comedy about love, survival, and the California Wolverine.

I heard nothing. Not even the branch that must have broken. But I knew. Something was out there, waiting in the woods with me.
— Lee, The Nature Room
