With Earth Day fast approaching, it’s time to figure out what to watch. With so many eco-related shows to watch on every streaming platform, it can be hard to decide where to start! From National Geographic’s “Secrets of the Whale” to the awe-inspiring intensity of “Explorer: The Last Tepui” on Disney+, there’s a nature documentary for everyone. But what if you’re looking for something more fun for the whole family?
“Branching Out: A Nat Geo Earth Day Adventure” is a three-episode series produced by ABC Localish Studios, starring ABC News chief meteorologist Ginger Zee, her husband Ben Aaron, and their two children in the series. Environmentally friendly, high energy road trip. Along the way, they meet National Geographic Explorers, who help them learn about real-world solutions to help protect our planet and create a greener future.
The program begins with the family exploring the important role trees play in Earth’s ecology, from the plight of the nearly extinct American Birchnut to the height at which scientists study the canopy. The family races to plant a Chestnut Tree in New York, before the show heads to Florida, where they meet up with National Geographic Explorer, Meg Lowman (also known as “Canopy Meg”) to play hide and seek under the trees. majestic.

Throughout the episodes, Ginger Zee’s bright and savvy personality shines through, complemented easily by her husband Ben’s humour. Ben, of the more ‘city-loving’ type, serves as the perfect shield for Ginger’s adventurous spirit. The children who were accompanying were adorable on the ride, even cheering on their mother at one point while she was 50ft off the ground on the branch of a large tree.
Equally fun and informative, ‘Branching Out’ has a message that most nature shows miss – Being environmentally conscious doesn’t mean losing family fun. In fact, the show shows how easy it can be to plan an eco-friendly trip the whole family can.
