Meet NG Young Explorers

London photographer Emily Ainsworth will share her adventures with the Mexican Circus tomorrow at headquarters.


“If you’re in D.C., join us at NG headquarters this Friday for a Young Explorers Salon, and meet three recent grantees: Shannon Switzer, Neil Losin, and Emily Ainsworth. Learn how their passion for adventure and the Earth led them from ‘fishing’ for lizards in urban Miami, to floating down California rivers, to running away with more than one Mexican circus.”

My second National Geographic blog for NG News Watch posted yesterday, Meet NG Young Explorers, about a really exciting event happening tomorrow at headquarters in DC.  I had the pleasure of interviewing three of National Geographic’s Young Explorers Grantees and hearing their inspirational stories of adventure.

If you are in DC tomorrow, so can you!

“Join us in an intimate club setting in the National Geographic Dining Hall Oct. 14 for an evening with these inspiring twenty-somethings. Food, drinks, and stories worth retelling will be served.”

If you can’t join the party at National Geographic (like me, I’ll be toasting my sister and her husband-to-be at their rehearsal dinner in New Orleans), join the conversation and tweet @natgeolive.
