Witness one of the greatest seasonal changes on the planet in the stunning new three-part PBS and BBC co-produced series, Great Yellowstone Thaw

Journey with the National Museum of Natural History’s Sant Director Kirk Johnson and a team of experts to Yellowstone National Park to witness the extraordinary survival instincts of the park’s natural species, including bears, wolves, bison, grizzlies, beavers and great gray owls.  Share their experiences as they examine the ways these animals fend off floods, starvation and fires, and endure the area’s extreme evolution from cold to heat during the spring season. 

Join Johnson in person on June 14 for a special excerpt screening followed by a discussion with Beth Hoppe, Chief Programming Executive at PBS, and Casey Anderson, grizzly bear expert featured in the film. Joe Hanson, writer of PBS Digital Studio's "It's Okay to Be Smart" will moderate.

This evening is co-presented with the Public Broadcasting Service.
