Big History ~ the evolutionary story of the Earth and the life on it, in one hour, with Dana Visalli
Event Description: Dana Visalli will carry out a seemingly impossible task: describing the evolution of life on Earth in ONE HOUR. Dana’s deep understanding and enthusiasm for nature shows in his work as a professional botanist, naturalist, writer, publisher and educator. While he is interested in all aspects of life on our planet, the topic for this presentation is especially fascinating to Dana, who shares, “Big History is the most interesting, compelling, and meaningful subject are I have ever encountered.” It was once thought that the Earth was static and unchanging, but we now know the opposite is true. Both the Earth and the life on it are dynamic and ever-changing. This is the scientific story of evolution; it borders on the spiritual, and is meaningful to our own lives.
