May Speaker Series Announced

A Guided Tour of the National Parks presented by Gib Egge

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the Meeting Room at the Geneva Library, 127 James Street, Geneva, IL.


In 1872, Yellowstone became the nation’s first National Park and, in 1916, the National Park Service was born. One hundred years later, the United States has fifty-nine National Parks, spanning an array of geological features, ecosystems, and historic sites. The National Park system fills an important role in conservation and environmental protection. And the parks provide a boon to local economies. In 2016, more than 300 million visitors traveled to our National Parks.

Gib is the Coordinator of Experiential Education and Training and an adjunct faculty member in the Physical Education department at the College of DuPage. In his twenty-two years at COD, he has designed and implemented over 200 adventure-based field programs all over the world. He has taught programs in fifty of the fifty-nine National Parks. In his free time, he enjoys photography and sharing his passion for wild places with his twin five-year-old daughters.

This is a free event. Reservations are not required, but suggested.
