Jane Goodall speaking at Chautauqua on July 6th, 2007

I was contacted by organizers of Chautauqua to help spread the word that Jane Goodall Jane Goodallwill be speaking at the event on July 6th, 2007 at 10:45 am. You should thank me because I had to scour the event webpage and as well as the Chautauqua webpage to find the exact date and time.

What is Chautauqua, you ask? In my university, a yearly Chautauqua was held mostly in celebration of the arts. Lots of students would put on plays and display their artwork. But the Chautauqua that Jane Goodall will be speaking at is larger than that. It is a larger movement that brings entertainment, education and culture for the larger community. Each day of the Chautauqua event is highlighted with with speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers, preachers, and specialists.

I’m waiting to hear back from the organizers that contacted me about what Jane Goodall will be speaking about, but the week’s theme is family oriented and titled, “All of a Kind? All Different?” Which somehow Jane Goodall will correlate to primate conservation.

If you are interested in attending the event will be held on July 6th, 2007. Jane Goodall will speak at 10:45am. You can find more information about the hotel this event is taking place over here, and if you want to see the rest of the calendar of events check out this PDF.

The most important part, aside from Jane Goodall speaking, is that if you wanna see her speak for one day you have to buy the one week pass. That’s what I’m gathering, cause I don’t see any day passes… and that will cost you $310! Please correct me if I am wrong.

  1. Hi guys – that sounds interesting. Will you be going? Also Dr Richard Leakey is speaking at the Royal Geographical Society in London on May 31st. He will be talking about climate change and great apes. It is a rare treat I believe for the British to have Dr Leakey in their midst. I unfortunately will not be going… I shall leave that to those who are lucky enough to be near! Paulin Ngobobo

  2. Hi Paulin,

    I will not be able to goto Jane Goodall’s talk, though I would love too.

    Thanks for telling us about Dr. Leakey’s visit to the Royal Geographic Society. I will investigate it a bit more and make an announcement, hopefully soon!


  3. Kambiz,
    I was at Chautauqua last summer and you can get a day pass for $15.

    However, if you buy a ticket to an event, your day pass is already included in the ticket price as far as I remember.

    You can always call them to verify whether this is indeed the case: 1.800.836.ARTS

  4. Thanks for clarifying that Anne. I appreciate it. I didn’t want to misinform people because I didn’t know myself. $15 is a big difference and definitely worth dishing out to see Jane Goodall. Your comment is much appreciated!
