Get ready for a T-rex sized adventure on January 20, when PBS KIDS premieres “Nature Trackers Adventure Camp,” an all-new, one-hour special from The Jim Henson Company’s hit series DINOSAUR TRAIN.
To celebrate the premiere, The Jim Henson Company has teamed up with TheCelebrityCafe.com and Readers Digest Children’s Books to offer five readers the chance to win a copy of “Buddy & the Nature Trackers” (MSRP: $9.99).
In the new one-hour special, kids will follow Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don in four brand-new, exciting stories as they travel to different ecosystems and learn about erosion, tree lines, rainforests and canyons. Join Mr. Conductor and his nephew Gilbert as they lead the crew on an action-packed journey! Throughout their adventures at camp, the group finds courage as they race down rivers, have a snowball fight, climb a tall mountain, ride a zip line over the rainforest, and hike down a canyon to dig for fossils! Viewers won’t be able to resist tapping their feet and singing along as the whole gang makes discoveries about the world around them. “Nature Trackers Adventure Camp” kicks off a new season of DINOSAUR TRAIN on PBS KIDS! The special premieres Monday, January 20 at 9am and 2:30pm ET/PT (check local listings). Watch out for repeats on Saturday, January 25 8:30am ET/PT; and Sunday, January 26, 8:00am ET/PT!
