'Parklands' to be featured in Richland Kiwanis series

RICHLAND -- The Richland Kiwanis will give Tri-City travelers a chance to visit some of America's parks without leaving town.

America's Parklands travel and adventure film will be shown at 7 p.m. Jan. 5 in the auditorium at Chief Joseph Middle School in Richland.

Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for students. Tickets are available at the door.

The film takes viewers on a soaring ride into Alaska's Denali National Park, the moss-encrusted rainforests of the Olympic National Forest, the secret life of sea otters along the California coast and along some of the nation's wild beaches and the staggering beauty of Lake Powell in Arizona.

And that's just a start.

The film also visits other areas of the country, like the prehistoric mounds of Ocmulgee in Georgia, the Redwood and Sequoia forests of California, Hells Canyon, the Florida Everglades and a few volcano parks in Hawaii. More than 20 national parks are featured in the film.
