HomeGrown-Lectures, Learning, Locally/ Vik Dewan
Thursday, April 6, 2017
HomeGrown-Lectures, Learning, Locally is a series of presentations given by personalities from the extended Main Line community and held at the Wayne Art Center. On Thursday, April 6, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, Vikram Dewan will reintroduce us to our famous and finest Philadelphia Zoo.
Vik Dewan is President and CEO of one of the area's most-visited cultural institutions, our much-loved Philadelphia Zoo, America's first zoo. Welcoming over 1.2 million visitors through its historic gates each year, the Zoo works to connect people with wildlife in a way that creates joyful discovery and inspires action for animals and habitats here and around the world. Dewan joined the Zoo 10 years ago and he has challenged the organization to be innovative and financially self-sustaining. During this evening at HomeGrown, Mr. Dewan will discuss the issues facing today's zoos and their relevance in our 21st century world and his own visionary ideas for the future of our Philly zoo.
