On Thursday, September 19. Katie Duzik presents "A Natural History Journey Through Northern Tanzania." Katie will share natural history travel stories and photographs from her trip to Tanzania in East Africa. From the great plains of the Serengeti east to the Ngorongoro Crater and onward to the Great Rift Valley, she will share what she learned about African natural history in the context of resource conservation, wildlife management, and ecotourism.
