Autumn in Greater Yellowstone

Join us for a rare sighting in the wild of the photographer who captured the jaw-dropping images on display currently in the Baker Exhibit Center. World-renowned nature photographer Thomas Mangelsen pays a virtual to the virtual Arboretum on Thursday, August 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to talk about the prolific 40-year career that has taken him to the last of the world’s wild places.

Have a question that you’d like to pose to the artist? Submit your questions in advance to adulteducation@ncarboretum and we’ll pass them on for Mangelsen to answer! Advance registration is required and capacity is limited. This event is offered free through Adult Education Programs, courtesy of The North Carolina Arboretum Society. Donations are gratefully accepted and go to support conservation-centered educational programming at the Arboretum.  

Mangelsen’s photographs in this traveling retrospective remind us to slow down, take a moment to connect with nature near and far, and feel a kinship with the creatures captured only through his lens. 

“A Life in the Wild” is on display daily, May 15 – September 5, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. inside the Baker Exhibit Center. Face coverings are required for visitors ages 5 years and older.
