In honor of Earth Day on April 22, the ABC Owned Television Stations, in collaboration with National Geographic, produced Branching Out: A Nat Geo Earth Day Adventure. The three-episode series features ABC News Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee and her family – husband Ben Aaron, host of Nat Geo’s Science of Stupid, and the couple’s two sons – as they go on an eco-adventure that involves climbing ancient trees, camping in an above-ground tent, kayaking and more.
Each episode takes the family on another excursion, looking at forests, farms and the oceans to discover new ways to help improve the environment.
The three episodes are available to stream on National Geographic’s YouTube, ABC Owned Television Stations’ digital sites and on ABC’s Localish. It will all culminate in a half-hour special that will air at different times across ABC Owned Television Stations over the weekend of April 22-24.
Michael Koenigs executive produced the series.
