Washington, D.C.— Carnegie Science is excited to launch a new immersive program called Expedition Earth: Roads to Discovery. These experiences are more than just another lecture series (although, don't get us wrong, we still love our Capital Science Evening talks). The events will initiate attendees into the globetrotting lives of wildlife photographers, field scientists, and conservationists. But they will go beyond the auditorium to offer an interactive, inclusive experience. If you accept our invitation to adventure, you will get to hear daring tales of travel and then engage with the night's featured explorer, as well as with a range of fun games and activities. Did we mention the snacks and drinks?
The inaugural Expedition Earth journey will highlight Frans Lanting, who has been hailed as one of the greatest photographers of our time. His decades of nature photography in the planet's wildest places transformed him from an artist into a passionate documentarian of the way humans impact delicate ecosystems the world over. Lanting says his work is an ongoing dialogue between his camera and the natural world, a conversation that has been influenced by a growing understanding of science. Come to our D.C. headquarters to see the living planet through his lens on October 20th and stay tuned for more Expedition Earth in the future.
