Backyard Wilderness Now Playing at the Zoo

Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is now screening Backyard Wilderness, a 3D film, at the Lozier Giant Screen Theater®. Showtimes are 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Closed captioning is available.

Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home, Backyard Wilderness displays unique wildlife imagery and behavior, all captured by cameras mounted inside dens and nests and moving along forest floors and pond bottoms. Viewers follow a young girl and her modern family, who are absorbed by an array of electronic devices. Initially oblivious to the natural world just outside their home, the family gradually discovers the intricate secrets that nature has hidden right outside their front door. Backyard Wilderness aims to encourage and empower children and families to get outside and observe the changing world around them.
