Our finale Travelogue event on March 16 at B-G

North BlenheimThank you to all the visitors who made our 2014 World Travelogue Series such a great success this year! Our kick-off event was "Icepedition" on March 2 - where we took a journey across the Atlantic without ever leaving New York and experienced the extraordinary beauty and wonder of Iceland.

Our second installment was "Awesome Australia" on the March 9 - Gerry Lemmo a naturalist, photographer and world adventurer, took us through the wonders of Australia including tropical rainforests, lush waterfalls, rolling pastureland, the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef.

Our finale event was held on March 16 - Dr. Tom Denham presented the thrills of climbing Devils Tower in Wyoming’s Black Hills. Devils Tower appeared as the impressive monolithic volcanic backdrop in Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
