Educational and interesting

I watched Coyote Peterson's Wild Field Trip with my 10 year old grandson and we both found it to be interesting and informative. My grandson wants to get to go with Mr. Peterson on one of his trips. We watched a number of episodes. My only complaint was his evolutionary "facts" since I find the theory of evolution to be full of distortion and misinformation. Other wise, the episodes were full of good animal information and I especially like that he includes a child. Giving this child a new experience with animals and teaching so many good things besides just facts, like learning how to handle a wild animal. I highly recommend this program and hope it continues to create new shows.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This is a great family-friendly show that will inspire the next generation of animal advocates and conservationists. Coyote Peterson's Wild Field Trip encourages children and adults alike to go out into the world to explore, appreciate, and advocate for the wildlife around us. The host does a great job of explaining facts in a child-friendly way. Diagrams and illustrations, paired with live-action shots, are used to support learning. Information about conservation sites, learning resources, and research projects are included in the show so that learning can extended beyond each episode. While the show lacks human diversity, it's full of learning opportunities and positive messages.
