Death and Dying in National Parks
Explore some of the most beautiful places in the world, as well as some of the most deadly – America’s National Parks. Although most visitors recognize the inherent dangers in exploring their parks, a good number are ignorant of the potential life threatening situations that can occur when you go on vacation and forget to pack your common sense. David is a twenty year veteran of the National Park Service and he will share stories and images from some of the truly awe inspiring places he has worked. The program will highlight Grand Canyon, Arches, Joshua Tree and Canyonlands National Parks and touch on many of the other parks in the system. Presented by National Park Service Ranger Dave Smith from Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site.
