Keystone Species

The Keystone State got its nickname due to being the middle of the 13 original colonies that became the United States and has played a key role in the economic, political and social development of the nation. A plant or animal can similarly be the key to the health and development of whole ecosystems. Come learn about how some special species hold nature together, including examples from right here in the Keystone State.

Watch it now; presented by Mark Fallon.

Some plants and animals play such an inegral part in ecosystems that ecologists call them "Keystone" species. Mark uses the examples of wolves and beavers to discuss this topic.

Earth Day

Save the Earth, we only have one! Does the Earth really need saving? Maybe it needs saving….from us. Learn better practices of reduce, reuse, and recycle at this month’s SAGE talk. Obtain new ways of living that will better our environment. A little change to our daily lives will make a big impact to our world. We are all in this together.

Watch it now; presented by Ehren Gross.

Celebrate the Silver Anniversary of Earth Day with Briar Bush's Ehren Gross. Learn a bit of the history of the start of the environmental movement, the basic concept of the 3 Rs and how this has evolved, and how to make a difference one household at a time.
EARTH DAY's 50th Birthday!

Down and Dirty: What is Soil?

Parents usually call it dirt. Gardeners refer to it as soil. But, what is it, really? Marvelous mud or mundane muck? In this program, we will get down to the nitty-gritty, our noses (nearly) to the ground. Using microscopes, photos, and channeling a particular cooking show, Naturalist Mark Fallon will stir up some answers on the mysteries of soil.

Watch it now; presented by Mark Fallon.

"Mad Mark the Shark" invites you into his Krazy Kitchen for an outrageous cooking experiment! Will he be able to recreate the secrete recipe of soil? A special appearance from his identical cousin, "Mr. Mark the Science Nerd", makes this an episode you don't want to miss!
