Earth Day is today, April 22. To celebrate, why not watch the Discovery Channel’s multi-part documentary, Frozen Planet? They are running the first 7 episodes today, beginning at 1 pm. The final episode premieres tonight at 7 pm CST.
Watch summer, spring, autumn, and winter in the Arctic and Antarctica. Follow polar bears, penguins, seals, and other wildlife as they live and survive the changing polar seasons. Breathtaking scenery, beautiful animals….you really want to see this.
You can also catch all episodes online, on the Discovery Channel website.
Want to learn more about our planet? The Library has lots of resources, e.g., Encyclopedia of the Antarctic, available in the Reference Collection on the main floor of the Library. Or try On Thin Ice: The Changing World of the Polar Bear, available in the Main Collection on the third floor. Or maybe you’d prefer Fraser’s Penguins: A Journey to the Future in Antarctica, also in the Main Collection. These and many other resources can be found by searching the Library’s online catalog.
