Backyard Wilderness at Fernbank Natural History Museum

I’m clearly all about getting out and about during the weekend. Whether it be hanging out with the family outside enjoying some nice weather or exploring one of Atlanta’s great attractions. Beginning this weekend you can get and check out the new IMAX film that will be playing at Fernbank Natural History Museum, Backyard Wilderness. This exciting new giant screen film 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—all captured by cameras mounted inside dens and nests, and moving along the forest floor and pond bottom, to reveal its inhabitants in rare and breathtaking intimacy.

The film follows Katie, a young girl, and her modern family living next to the woods who are blind to the real-life spectacle around them, absorbed by an array of electronic devices in their busy lives. Katie gradually discovers the intricate secrets that nature has hidden so close to her front door and we experience the joy she finds in her interactions with this new world. The film reminds us sometimes in ordinary places, you can uncover extraordinary things that can transform you forever—you just need to step outside.
