Lone Tree Arts Center Offers National Geographic Live Series Online

January 13, 2021

The Lone Tree Arts Center opened its doors in 2011 with a vision to be a place that fosters the growth of visual and performing arts, science, and cultural understanding for every member our community. And, until mid-March of last year, that's exactly what it has been. 

As it became apparent that in-person programming would be on hold indefinitely, the Lone Tree Arts Center found new ways to serve the community. Their virtual online programming has reached patrons in over 35 states and three countries, including individuals who are homebound and unable to experience the gift of the arts in person.

The very popular National Geographic LIVE! series is their newest virtual offering. See the world through the eyes of National Geographic explorers, adventurers, scientists, and photographers from the comfort of your living room with three unique adventures that will make this a series to remember!

Life on Other Worlds with Kevin Peter Hand and Kobie Boykins
Wednesday, January 20 at 8:00 PM

How close are we to discovering life on other planets?

NASA’s Perseverance rover is due to land on Mars in 2021 to search for signs of ancient life and collect rock and soil samples for possible return to Earth. Jupiter’s moon Europa is home to a vast subsurface ocean — a body of water that could sustain primitive forms of life on this alien world nearly 600 million miles from our planet.

Join planetary scientist and astrobiologist Kevin Peter Hand and NASA engineer Kobie Boykins for the latest intriguing updates on this vast frontier of exploration.

Reimagining Dinosaurs with Nizar Ibrahim and Sebastián Rozadilla
Wednesday, February 24 at 8:00 PM

Groundbreaking new science is changing what we thought we knew about how dinosaurs looked, moved, and livedQ

Newfound troves from the Moroccan desert suggest that the immense predator Spinosaurus used crocodile-like jaws and a unique paddle-like tail to actively pursue prey in the water: a first for dinosaurs. And in Chile, scientists have discovered a shocking new therapod. Unlike its cousins, Velociraptor and T. rex, Chilesaurus consumed a vegetarian diet.

Join leading paleontologists Nizar Ibrahim and Sebastián Rozadilla for stories and conversation about the evolving science of dinosaurs.
