Ken Burns’ newest documentary tells the surprising history of the U.S. National Park System, an idea whose existence has so long been a part of the national fabric we can hardly imagine our country without it. After all, what would the American landscape be without the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone or The Smoky Mountains? America didn’t have to set all that land aside, but it did, including Ohio’s very own Cuyahoga Valley National Park. As the six-part documentary airs this week on WVIZ/PBS, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation with filmmaker Ken Burns and local parks employees about what our National Parks mean to all of us.

Guests

Ken Burns, filmmaker
John Debo, former Superintendent, Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Lisa Petit, Park Ranger, Cuyahoga Valley National Park
