In this geologic wonder, we will explore "Life on the Edge" – a world of contrasts where ecological regions, cultures, past and present meet. This unique location will allow you to learn the challenges, conflicts and successes of adapting to "Life on the Edge."

Originally broadcast live from Texas's largest history museum, the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, the webcast takes you on a journey from past to present, exploring life around the canyon from the vast plains stretching across the horizon to the immense canyon below. Students will learn about the people, animals and plants that call this area home.
