2017 National Geographic Speaker Series
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science has announced the lineup for its 2017 National Geographic Live! Speaker Series. The series kicks off Jan. 5, in conjunction with the Museum’s First Thursday Late Night, with record-breaking mountaineer Hilaree O’Neill, the first female to climb the world’s first- and fourth-tallest mountains in under 24 hours. The three-part series also will feature National Geographic Fellow and aquatic ecologist Zeb Hogan, host of Nat Geo’s Monster Fish TV show. Then Mireya Mayor will discuss her surprising transition from NFL cheerleader to National Geographic Emerging Explorer and wildlife expert. All three lectures will take place at 7 p.m. in The Hoglund Foundation Theater, a National Geographic Experience. Season and individual tickets are on sale now at perotmuseum.org.
