The Garden Club of Denver’s community lecture is coming soon! We are pleased to welcome Dr. David E. Guggenheim on March 10. Dr. Guggenheim is a marine scientist, conservation policy specialist, ocean explorer, submarine pilot and educator. He is the founder and president of the Washington, DC-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Ocean Doctor, dedicated to advancing the conservation of the world’s oceans through scientific research, education and community engagement.
From the hallways of Washington, DC to the coral reefs of Cuba to thousands of feet below the Bering Sea, the audience will get a unique perspective on exploring unknown parts of our oceans and ocean exploration. They’ll also learn about the threats to the oceans and what’s being done to reverse their decline. The lecture will cover how perspectives on the oceans have changed over the past 50 years and, despite our species’ journey into space, how little we actually know about the salt-water-covered portion of our own planet.
And, extending our reach into the community, Dr. Guggenheim will also deliver a lecture to all 470 students at Denver School of Science and Technology Montview on March 11. The school competed with other schools in the DSST network to win this honor. They are excited to have a world-renowned scientist meet with students to share his passion and expertise.
