Regional Films

Bringing global issues home

lylell Fork - The Legacy ProjectNarrated by Jane Fonda and with original music by Pat Metheny, the regional films tell powerful stories of environmental change across California.

Currently showing in visitor centers at Lassen Volcanic National Park, Coast Redwoods National and State parks, Point Reyes National Seashore, Los Angeles Basin/Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, the regional films have reached thousands of California park visitors of all ages and backgrounds.

The films will soon be available to educators for free streaming through the Project’s Educator Portal (to be launched soon) and to the public for a nominal fee (purchase available soon).

Nature Theatre - The Legacy ProjectDuring production of our films, the Legacy Project has brought professional development opportunities to teachers, scientists and digital media producers through collaborative partnerships at each of our park locations.  We strive to create high quality media that is entertaining and inspiring while at the same time scientifically current and accurate.
