Rocky Mountain National Park and PBS's Education Series has been presenting The National Parks: America's Best Idea Series each Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center. The last program will be shown this Saturday.

Nearly a decade in the making, The National Parks: America's Best Idea, a documentary series from acclaimed filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan, is a breathtaking journey through the nation's most spectacular landscapes and a celebration of the people, famous and unknown, who fought to save them for future generations to treasure.

Saturday, February 5, 7:00 p.m. – The Morning of Creation
Biscayne National Park is set aside after a land owner donates his land while the fight over Alaska National Park's begins. President Carter's effigy is burned in Alaska as others work to establish new national parks. Death threats against park employees do not stop the establishment of parks in Alaska.

These evening programs are held at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center in Rocky Mountain National Park at 7:00 p.m. They are free and open to the public. For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park, please call the park's Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
