Join us for our Nat Geo Live field trip and learn about Coral Kingdoms and Empires of Ice! We’ll explore the rich and diverse waters and coral of Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea; discover the world beneath the Antarctic ice; then travel north to the Gulf of St. Lawrence to see whales, wolfish and harp seals.
When: October 23
Where: Blumenthal Performing Arts Center & Discovery Place, Charlotte NC
Registration Deadline: August 25
Spots are limited. Members have priority for this event, but non-members will be added as space is available.
During this Nat Geo Live presentation, we’ll explore rarely seen undersea worlds with two photographers who create a visual voice for the world’s oceans. David Doubilet and his wife and underwater partner, Jennifer Hayes, spent one remarkable year on assignment, exploring three unique marine environments for National Geographic.
They’ll take us beyond the published stories and share the reality of “behind-the-camera” adventures. After the show, we’ll go to nearby Discovery Place to learn more about Coral Kingdoms.
This field trip is appropriate for students in kindergarten (5 years old) and up. No younger siblings can attend. At least one parent or designated adult must attend with their student(s). (This is not a drop-off event).
The timing of events will be provided later, but plan for 8:00 am until 1:00 pm or later.
