The National Parks, America’s Best Idea

National Parks

The National Parks, America’s Best Idea Is a film series that traces the birth of the national park idea in the mid-1800s and follows its evolution for nearly 150 years. Using ar-chival photographs, first-person accounts of historical characters, personal memo-ries and analysis from more than 40 inter-views, and what Burns believes is the most stunning cinematography in Florentine Films’ history, the series chronicles the steady addition of new parks through the stories of the people who helped create them and save them from destruction. In honor of National Wildlife week, we will be presenting this film in parts. Check the calendar for dates.
