Preview 'Minnesota’s National Park Legacy' film

Not to be out-shined by Ken Burns, the Voyageurs National Park Association, along with National Park Service sites in Minnesota and Twin Cities Public Television, have produce an educational film highlighting the importance of conserving the state's National Park sites.

The 30-minute film, titled "Minnesota's National Park Legacy," will air Oct. 4 on TPT following the six-part series "The National Parks: America’s Best Idea" by documentary filmmaker Burns.

Those who can't wait until Oct. 4 can see a special premiere screening tonight at 7 at the University of Minnesota's Bell Museum of National History or tomorrow at the Backus Community Center Auditorium in International Falls, Minn.

Note: The audio in this clip is not properly synched to the video, but that problem doesn't distract from the beautiful cinematography.
