Join filmmaker Sandy Mortimer as she presents the first film in the LBCC Travel at the Tripp film series “Yellowstone Trails and Tales” on Sunday, Oct. 9 at 2 p.m. in the Linn-Benton Community College Russell Tripp Performance Center.
Mortimer’s film captures some of the most intimate scenes of otters, coyotes, wolves, bears, moose, fox, mountain sheep and elk in the wilds of Yellowstone National Park.
From the springtime, with the captivating endless play and interaction of the young, through the summer adventures, and into autumn and winter, when life grows harsh, discover how and why the many families of wild creatures in Yellowstone, our first National Park, are motivated entirely by their own instincts.
Mortimer’s career has ranged from politics to television production to travel films. A former flight attendant for American Airlines, she also served as public speaker and travel consultant for the airline, traveling extensively throughout the United States and the world. Mortimer’s films have been shown on foreign television and are available on videotape in schools and libraries.
Travel at the Tripp is produced by LBCC Performing Arts and AAA Travel Services. Experts from AAA Travel will on hand along with the filmmaker to answer your travel questions, with prizes from AAA given at each show.
