About the Event

Registered Roots students are invited to a National Geographic Live presentation of Building the Photo Ark with photographer Joel Sartore.

National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore is on a mission to capture portraits of the world’s species before they disappear. The Photo Ark project is the largest archive of its kind with more than 9,000 images and counting. Hear about his comical mishaps, endearing encounters, and personal stories while documenting a world worth saving. 

IMPORTANT Please arrive by 10 am! We will not be able to enter the theatre until our whole group arrives, so please be considerate to others and arrive on time. The Roots group will meet inside the lobby of the Jack Singer Concert Hall, near the coat check. Tanis will have a Roots sign, please check in with her to register  (Late-comers will not be allowed to enter the theatre).  

PARKING - Please give yourself ample time to drive downtown and find parking!
