FREE Members-only screening of the IMAX film, Backyard Wilderness 3D

Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. & 11:30 a.m.

Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home, this film displays a stunning array of unique wildlife imagery and behavior - all captured by cameras mounted inside dens and nests and moving along forest floors and pond bottoms.

Follow Katie and her family who are absorbed by an array of electronic devices and, at first, oblivious to the natural world just outside their home. Katie gradually discovers the intricate secrets that nature has hidden so close to her front door and we experience the joy she finds in her interactions with this newly uncovered world.

Following each screening there will be a Q&A with the Emmy Award-winning and Oscar® nominated filmmakers of Backyard Wilderness 3D, Susan Todd and Andrew Young.

RSVP for one screening only
Party limited to 2 adults and 4 children
Registration opens on Monday, September 16 at 10:00 a.m.
