The Concord Monitor announces a free lecture on Thursday, April 6th (7pm) entitled "Gorillas to Grizzlies: Saving Them, Saving Us" by Drs. Bill Weber and Amy Vedder, co-authors of the acclaimed In the Kingdom of Gorillas.
This talk, on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Sweeney Hall Auditorium on the campus of the New Hampshire Technical Institute, will describe the shining success Drs. Weber and Vedder have had in saving the gorillas during the turbulent political upheavals that plagued Rwanda. It will offer lessons learned in Africa as perspective on current conservation efforts from the Alaskan Arctic to Yellowstone to the Great Northern Forest.

A large audience is expected for this special program. Admission is free and refreshments will be served after the presentation.
