Lessons From Chile: 
Photos from 40 days and 4000 kilometers across a rugged and troubled paradise.

Central Lakes College sociologist and photographer Gary Payne will take his audience on a visual journey through Chile’s Andean mountain range, its coastal estuaries, and its communities.  Chile has been described as one of the most beautiful and resource-rich nations on Earth.  Gary returned from South America in late January after visiting museums, Amer-Indian communities, national parks, rodeos, vineyards, central markets and the capitol, Santiago. The presentation will include photos of birds and mammals that Chile has on its endangered list for protection. Chile’s history will be summarized, and the controversial topic of U.S. support of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet will be addressed.
