A Journey to Africa
Friday, June 13, 6:30-9 p.m.
"In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous," - Aristotle
As an award-winning executive producer of Nature, one of the most watched documentary film series on PBS, Fred Kaufman has captured the marvelous secret life of the wild and brought it to our living rooms.
Now, WTVP and the Peoria Zoo are offering you the chance to meet the man behind the scenes and hear his incredible stories.
Join us for a fun, casual evening of conversation and cocktails on Friday, June 13 at the Zambezi River Lodge at the Peoria Zoo.
As the sun sets, you and your friends are invited to stroll through the Zoo’s lush Africa exhibit with cocktails in hand and see the animals in realistic replicas of their natural habitats. Kaufman - winner of the trifecta of the wildlife industries' highest honors - will then entertain us with the behind-the-scenes filmaking of this iconic series. Learn the secrets of how they capture such awesome—and sometimes dangerous—stories from around the world.
Tickets are $65/each or $125/couple. Enjoy appetizers and complimentary wine, beer and a special animal themed cocktail created just for this event.
