Join fellow Young Professionals Group members for a complimentary reception and special sneak peek screening of the first episode of Discovery: NORTH AMERICA. In this unforgettable television event, Discovery Channel turns the lens toward its homeland and captures a land where life collides with hostile, untamed wilderness in the most diverse, deadly environment on Earth. The YPG and the network behind PLANET EARTH, LIFE, FROZEN PLANET and AFRICA invite you to this sneak peek for a closer look at some of the wild places The Nature Conservancy is working to protect every day!
