It is one of the most mysterious bodies of water on the planet. Within the Great Salt Lake, only brine shrimp, bacteria and algae can survive the harsh, saline waters. Surrounding the shoreline, however, are some of the world's most pristine, ecologically diverse wetlands, which are home to millions of world class migratory birds. Narrated by Academy-Award winning actress Joanne Woodward, The Great Salt Lake: America's Legacy of Wetlands tells one of the most important stories of the American West. It is a story about wildlife, biologists, ranchers, developers and environmentalists. Produced by KUED senior producer John Howe, this one-hour natural history portrait can be seen on Ch. 7 or on video. A companion Web site, www.kued.org/wetlands, offers resources and a photo gallery set to original music composed for the documentary by Vince Frates.
