This program must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance to receive group rates.

Backyard Wilderness will surprise and entertain viewers with the unexpected wonders of nature that are right under our noses - in our own backyards. Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home, the film displays a stunning array of unique wildlife images and behavior. We follow Katie, a young girl who is absorbed by an array of electronic devices as she gradually discovers the intricate secrets that nature has hidden so close to her front door. The film reminds us that Wi-Fi is not the only connection that matters and that sometimes in ordinary places, you can uncover extraordinary things - you just need to step outside.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
