What does it really mean to chase a life-long dream?

Chasing Dreams: A Journey from Chicago to the Rainforest

Join Chicago-based photographer Mike Talladen to explore the rainforests and wildlife of Sumatra and the Peruvian Amazon inch-by-verdant-inch. This presentation follows the story of how a lifelong dream turned into a mission and offers an in-depth look at eco-tourism, conservation vs palm oil, permaculture, wildlife rescue, and all of the ways our daily lives can (and do!) impact places and things halfway across the world.

Hosted by the Student Environmental Center, this event will be held in the Alumni Hall (HSU 114) of the University of North Carolina Asheville from 5:30-7:30pm.

Free & open to the public.
