DESERT OASIS – Creating a Wetlands Park in Las Vegas | PBS

Duration: 05:09
Program: Desert Oasis - Creating A Wetlands Park in Las Vegas

Desert Oasis is an HD documentary film portrait of the last, significant open space left in Las Vegas, Nevada - and the community members who sought to protect it by turning it into a Wetlands Park. The film shows how forward thinking communities can collaborate to keep nature available in their urban environment; and how the elemental connection between people and nearby nature benefits a community in return. Desert Oasis is a testimony to the value and beauty of these desert wetlands and the community who refused to let this special place slip through their hands.
