A Night with National Geographic Explorers

Conservation Stories: Plants, Pollinators and People 

Stories from around the world educate us, expose us to new cultures, tell us what makes us human and show us where we can make a difference. Join us for explorations and stories that span the world, from the Himalayas to your own backyard, and topics that range from bee biology to political boundaries. Light snacks will be served.


Brian Buma: The Last Tree on Earth: The worlds southernmost tree, forest and explorations on the wild islands of Cape Horn, Chile.

Robbie Hart: Botany at the Heights: Tracking the effects of climate change on Himalayan plants and people.

Rebecca Theobold: Know Your Resources
