In September, the Sierra Club takes an in-depth look at the conservation efforts for some the world's most amazing
creatures: elephants and rhinoceros. Renown zoologist Rick Barongi, Executive Vice President of
Conservation at the Houston Zoo, has spent countless hours in Africa studying these magnificent creatures, and is an expert in
their conservation. When he was the Director of the Houston Zoo and designer of Disney's Animal Kingdom, he was well
known for his knowledge in zoological park management and exhibit design, but his passion is conservation of the world's
great creatures. Come visit with us on September 11 at 7:30 PM and see that passion. From working in zoos from coast-to-coast,
to extensive travels in Africa and South America, Rick has unique experience and insight to share. Best of all, he will share
his insight in a special presentation free and open to the public. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
(Social period begins at 7:00 PM. Main program begins at 7:30 PM.)
Location: Pecore Hall of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 1805 West Alabama (at the corner of West Alabama
and Woodhead). Houston, TX.
Ample parking is available behind the church.
