This year’s Fall Film Series, Planet Earth, continues every Saturday at 7:00 p.m. through December 15 at Rocky Mountain National Park’s Beaver Meadows Visitor Center Auditorium.
More than five years in the making, this 11-part series, narrated by award-winning actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver, includes never-before-seen animal behaviors, startling views of locations captured by cameras for the first time and unprecedented high-definition production techniques.
Saturday, December 1, 7:00 p.m. – Great Plains
Trek to one of the Earth’s largest land habitats, where vast open spaces play host to the biggest groups of animals in the world. From the 2,000-mile migration undertaken by three million caribou in the Arctic tundra, to a pride of 30 starving lions hunting elephants, Great Plains reveals the most impressive migrations and boldest hunts on the planet.
Saturday, December 8, 7:00 p.m. – Fresh Water
Follow rivers as they course from mountain to the sea, nourishing unique and dramatic wildlife. From the world’s deepest lake inhabited by the only species of freshwater seal, to a stunning look at the world’s highest waterfall, Fresh Water offers a unique perspective on the secret lives teeming in our purest waters.
Saturday, December 15, 7:00 p.m. – Forests
Investigate these temperate regions and find some of the most elusive creatures and well-adapted plant life on Earth. From the giant sequoia tree 10 times the size of a blue whale to the trackless Siberian Forest where just 40 Amur leopards remain, Forest brings to life a seemingly familiar world that remains largely unexplored.
There will be no evening programs December 22 and December 29. Evening programs will resume January 5, 2008.
