Expedition Chesapeake iMax Film Premieres March 20 At The Whitaker Center For Science & The Arts In Harrisburg

On March 20 the Expedition Chesapeake iMax film will premiere at the Whitaker Center For Science & The Arts in Harrisburg at 5:30.

This is the first giant screen film to feature the Chesapeake Bay and its 64,000 square mile watershed.

Biologist and wildlife conservationist Jeff Corwin takes us on a journey from the headwaters of the Susquehanna River in New York through the rugged Allegheny Mountains, and down to the sandy shores of uninhabited islands at the southern end of the Chesapeake Bay. 

Along the way we meet dedicated scientists who have devoted their careers to studying, nurturing and sustaining beloved animal species in the region. 

The survival and resilience of iconic and intriguing animal species, including river otters, blue crab, osprey and hellbenders, illustrate the important role that each of us plays in the reclamation, conservation and future health of watersheds and estuaries wherever we live. 

This is Whitaker Center Production's first world premiere event and the first public screening of the film.  To remember this special occasion, each child and adult in attendance will receive a film poster suitable for framing.
