Each Wednesday during the month of May, the Belly Up, Aspen's premiere live music venue, is screening episodes of the award-winning Planet Earth II series. Tonight's episode is entitled Grasslands and as described sounds fascinating for nature lovers: "Grasslands cover one-quarter of all land and support the vast gatherings of wildlife, but to survive here animals must endure the most hostile seasonal changes on the planet. From Asia's bizarre-looking saiga antelope to the giant anteaters of Brazil, grassland animals have adapted in extraordinary ways to cope with these extremes. In the flooded Okavango, lions take on formidable buffalo in epic battles, on the savannah bee-eaters take advantage of elephants to help catch insects and, on the freezing northern tundra, caribou embark on great migrations shadowed by hungry Arctic wolves." The film starts at 9:30pm. Further details at 970-544-9800.
