Oct 21, 2020
Spring is a time of great awakening in America, bringing an explosion of new growth and new life throughout the country. Join us as we track this season of birth and movement, from state-to-state, from the vernal equinox to the summer solstice. We'll witness gulls and eagles feasting on frozen gizzard shad in the thawing Mississippi River, discover the delicate courtship rituals of Florida alligators, observe a horseshoe crab invasion on the Jersey Shore, and more, all captured by a team of award-winning wildlife cinematographers.


S1 E2
Oct 28, 2020
The June solstice ushers in summer and as the sun's energy fuels a new season, it's make-or-break time for America's wildlife. The creatures must spread their wings, battle for mates, and harvest nature's bounty while times are good to survive when times get tough. From the light show of the Great Smoky Mountain mating fireflies to the upstream struggle of Alaska's sockeye salmon, and from the burrow-building prairie dogs of South Dakota to the head-butting bison of Yellowstone, see how summer's impact is felt across the nation's land and sea.


S1 E3
Oct 30, 2020
It's autumn in America and the foliage is showing its colors from the Pacific Northwest to New England. But it's not just the trees that are taking a cue from autumn's chill; across the country, creatures are flying south and stocking up before the long, brutal winter arrives. Witness the busiest of America's wild seasons as we follow Wyoming beavers working their tails off to gather food, white pelicans cruising the Mississippi Flyway on their way south, Montana bighorn sheep playing king-of-the-mountain for mating rights, and more.


S1 E4
Nov 04, 2020
It's winter in America, when darkness falls faster, food grows scarcer, and wildlife is pushed to the limits. Some animals will tough it out during these brutal months while others will turn it into an advantage. Still others will escape to the warmth of the south...where survival is still far from guaranteed. Join us as we explore wild America during the most demanding season of the year, from tiny monarch butterflies to mammoth humpback whales, and from colorless landscapes buried in snow and ice to the vibrant beauty of the aurora borealis.
