Don’t miss the last two installments of this year’s 11-part Fall Film Series, Planet Earth, January 5 and 12. Programs are presented Saturdays at 7 p.m. at Rocky Mountain National Park’s Beaver Meadows Visitor Center Auditorium.

More than five years in the making, Planet Earth redefines blue-chip natural history filmmaking and continues the Discovery Channel mission to provide the highest quality programming in the world. Award-winning actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver narrates this series which includes never-before-seen animal behaviors, startling views of locations captured by cameras for the first time and unprecedented high-definition production techniques.

Saturday, January 5, 7:00 p.m. -- Caves
Descend into the only habitat not directly driven by sunlight and discover some of the most peculiar creatures on Earth. From Borneo’s Deer Cave where five million bats roost to cave swiftlets that build nests out of saliva, Caves digs deep into an underground world where few people have ventured.

Saturday, January 12, 7 p.m. -- Deserts
Voyage to the world’s harshest environments and learn how life manages to keep a precarious hold in every desert. From the llama-like-guanacos of Chile’s Atacama Desert that survive by licking dew from cactus spines, to lions that scour arid Nambia for antelopes, Deserts unravels the secrets behind survival in unimaginable conditions.

All programs are free and open to the public. For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park call (970) 586-1206.
