PEAR and CCLA are kicking off Earth Week with a screening of Planet Earth (powered by the Solar Rover!--episode descriptions below) followed by a campout on Walker Beach!  Unplug your appliances and come sleep under the stars!

GREAT PLAINS 

A quarter of the earth's surface is covered with grass, and the world's plains are home to massive herds of animals. This episode traverses the grasslands of Mongolia and the flooding plains of Papua New Guinea, and finds great gatherings of creatures, such as East Africa's wildebeest and clusters of rare grazers like Mongolian gazelles. 

FRESHWATER 

Just 3 percent of the planet's water is fresh and it is our most precious resource. Rivers and lakes have shaped the earth, carving out the world's most impressive gorges, valleys and waterfalls. Unique behavior takes place in the presence of this life force, such as dueling otters and crocodiles and diving macaques.  

POLE TO POLE 

PLANET EARTH's premiere episode, "Pole to Pole," ties the series together with a fresh understanding of how life in every nook and cranny of the globe is connected -- from the highest mountains and darkest caves; shallowest water and deepest oceans; ice-covered lands and great plains; untamed jungles and giant forests; to freshwater and the harshest deserts. The sunward tilt of Earth's orbit dictates all our lives, creating the seasons that trigger one of the greatest spectacles in the world -- the mass migration of animals. It's a unique view of the majesty of our planet and the amazing creatures that live here.
