Kratts, Jet and Nature Cat join PBS Summer of Adventure

Stop The Summer Learning Gap! Here’s a fun, sure-fire way to keep the young learner’s gray matter working all summer long.

As part of the PBS Summer of Adventure, a limited series that take viewers to some of the world’s most amazing places and cultures, the stars of Wild Kratts, Ready Jet Go! and Nature Cat will launch a few adventures of their own!

Each will roll out a new, one-hour special this summer. Besides that, Chris and Martin Kratt of Wild Kratts will host Wild Alaska Live, a three-part, multi-platform production that explores the must-see natural spectacle that plays out across the Alaskan wilderness. Wild Alaska Live will be at 7 pm July 23, 26 and 30.

Wild Kratts Alaska: Hero’s Journey premieres July 24 and 28 at 4 pm CDT. While creature-adventuring in Alaska, one of Aviva’s breakthrough inventions falls overboard and attaches to a sockeye salmon – jumpstarting a wild chase upriver through the wilderness.
