(rain or snow date January 24) 
Ascutney House Great Hall
Rtes 5 and 131
Ascutney Vermont
Join us for an undersea adventure with photographer Nancy Nutile-McMenemy as she and her husband travel 240 miles south of the Mexican Baha Peninsula to the remote Revillagigedo Islands (Soccorro Islands) in search of the Giant Mantas. They traveled with the Solmar V, a dive vessel based in Cabo San Lucas Mexico since 1992.

Some call these islands the "Little Galapagos" for their rich and diverse marine life. Nutile-McMenemy has been photographing the underwater world for almost 9 years and has only encountered one Giant Manta on one dive in the Galapagos many years ago. Travel with us on this journey of "Discovering the Giant Mantas" through her images and videos.

The talk will be held in the Great Room of Ascutney House located at the junction of Rtes 131 and 5 in Ascutney Vermont. The Weathersfield Proctor Library is hosting the event.
