Set against the immense backdrop of the majestic Grand Canyon, “Grand Canyon Adventure” will take audiences on an exhilarating river-rafting adventure down the Colorado River in the company of a team of explorers who are committed to bringing awareness to global water issues. One of the world's mightiest rivers, the Colorado, no longer reaches the sea. Every drop of river water is allocated to agriculture and populations along the way, many of whom don't even realize their connection to the river. No water remains for the river's end -- the Colorado Delta -- once a thriving estuary that supported the most diverse biosphere in North America. How do we balance our needs with nature's? How do we provide enough fresh water for everyone who needs it, not only along the Colorado River, but everywhere on our planet?
