Saturday, July 27, 2019 - Beyond Yellowstone with Chris Johns
Chris Johns was named editor in chief of National Geographic magazine in 2005. His extensive redesign of the magazine and focus on excellence in photojournalism and reporting have revitalized the magazine into a timely, relevant read for people looking for deeper insight into environmental and energy issues, world cultures, science, and the natural world. Before his current role, Johns produced dozens of award-winning articles for National Geographic and other publications, creating defining images of Africa and its wildlife. This event will focus on the importance of connecting protected places. Even an area as vast as the 22 million acre Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem needs to be connected to additional protected areas such as Glacier National Park.
