National Geographic Live, sponsored by Subaru of America and Wagner Subaru, is a three-part speaker series showcasing our world through the eyes of National Geographic scientists, explorers, photographers, and filmmakers. Five Rivers MetroParks and Dayton Live are proud to partner in presenting this series to Dayton. Nat Geo Live events are amazing firsthand presentations by people who travel the world to get the powerful stories and images you’ve seen on the National Geographic Channel and in National Geographic magazine. Packed with amazing photography and video, each event concludes with a lively question-and-answer session, and an opportunity to meet the presenter in the lobby.
