One of the most overlooked ecosystems on the continent consists of a massive sea of sagebrush that stretches across 11 states in the American West, including Wyoming. Among those that have adapted to survive here are birds found nowhere else: greater sage-grouse that lead remarkable lives mostly hidden in the sage. Join Wyoming PBS for a special sneak peek at an amazing film produced by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and distributed by the award-winning PBS series NATURE: Film screening will be followed by a Q&A with the producer and lead cinematographer.
