Members of the campus and surrounding communities are invited to join internationally renowned photographer, author and conservationist Joel Sartore on Friday, March 2, 2018 as he shares his insights into the National Geographic Photo Ark, his collection of images that capture world’s rarest animals.

Sartore’s visit begins with a public keynote at 4 p.m. in Foy Hall Auditorium where he will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the Photo Ark and discuss issues affecting wildlife and their habitats.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. and seating is limited.
