BETHEL, Conn. – Adventure traveler and photographer David Roberts will make an audio-visual presentation entitled “It’s a Wild, Wild World" to the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at St. Thomas Church in Bethel.

Over the years, he has shared his images and experiences from these travels in more than 20 presentations at AMC events, as well as at many other locations. In the presentation, Roberts will focus on and highlight many of the natural wonders he has seen and photographed in his travels. The presentation will feature wildlife in Africa, North and South America, Europe, Asia, the Arctic and Antarctica, and some of the fascinating people living in the remotest areas around the globe.
