World Travel Series opens
Saturday with Volcanic Planet

Volcanoes are the most extreme, dramatic and explosive forces of nature on the planet. They have produced many of the most valuable minerals and arable soil on Earth. Every day, volcanoes are exploding around the world.

 Those interested in experiencing the rush of the exploding lava and in talking to a filmmaker brave enough to capture such moments will have the opportunity to do so when the World Travel Series presents Peter Rowe’s Volcanic Planet on Sat., Nov. 1. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. in King Concert Hall.

Tickets are available at the door for this general admission event. One child 12 and under is admitted free with each adult ticket purchased. Tickets may also be purchased through the Campus Ticket Office in the Williams Center, by phone at 673-3501 or online at the link below.
