Dive Into The Sagebrush Sea — Airing May 20 on PBS Nature

Mark your calendar and set your DVR — you won't want to miss a major new documentary about the great sagebrush plains — one of the largest yet most vulnerable landscapes in North America. Capturing both the breathtaking sweep of the land and the intimate struggles of its most delicate inhabitants, this 1-hour show immerses you in a world of owls, hawks, eagles, bluebirds, pronghorn, and coyotes, all framed by the spectacular rituals of a bird you truly have to see to believe: the Greater Sage-Grouse.
