Volcanoes and Extreme Landscapes
Thursday, February 25
1pm • Carman Community Room
Volcanoes have always both fascinated and frightened mankind. Often causing massive loss of life, they've been worshipped as gods, and feared as homes for the devil. They emit huge amounts of poison gas and ash, yet provided some of the most fertile land on Earth. In the Globe Trekker Special, the travelers explore the world's most spectacular volcanoes, traveling from the heart of Europe, across the Atlantic and Caribbean, to the deadly Pacific Ring of Fire. *This episode is 90 minutes! Meet at 1pm for refreshments. Film begins promptly at 1:30pm.
