College Experiences Corwin


Jeff Corwin, probably best known for hosting Animal Planet's "The Jeff Corwin Experience," was the first of the 2010-11 Distinguished Speaker Series guests. He took to the stage at Penn State Altoona on September 30 and addressed a crowd of more than 250 students, faculty, staff, and community members, including a local Cub Scout troop.

Corwin shared stories of what drove him to become a naturalist and conservationist and his experiences with animals over the years. He also spoke about the importance of nature conservation and stated that it is never too late for conservation efforts.
