Aquifer Activist: Discover Cave Diving Exploration...

Presented by Ukiah Library at Ukiah Library

On Tuesday, December 13th at 6 pm, the Ukiah Library presents a multi-media talk, “Aquifer Activist: Discover Cave Diving Exploration,” with local film-maker Christopher Brown.

Chris will give a uniquely personal multi-media account of global cave diving exploration & karst aquifer. Enjoy his unique insight with photos, fossils, advanced proto-type technologies, maps, and stories of this astonishing scientific research conducted around the world.

In a fun presentation for all ages and interests, you’ll learn about paleo-history, movie monsters, fossil worlds, extremophiles — and the deepest depths of boundless curiosity!
