Photographer and world traveler Dave Pressler will make an audio-visual presentation entitled “The Maya – A Classic View" to the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 in Westport.

The presentation will be at Saugatuck Congregational Church, 245 Post Road East, Westport. Wine and appetizers from 6.15 pm, dinner at 7.00 pm. and presentation at 8.00 pm. AMC members and non-members are welcome to attend. The cost is $8 for members and $15 for non-members. Participants are asked to bring along a dessert to share if they can. No reservations. Pay at door only. For more information and directions go to www.ct-amc.org/fairfield or email Eleanor Sasso at easasso@optonline.net.

“The Maya – A Classic View” explores both the physical remains of the Maya Classic Period from 250 to 900 AD as well as a view of the present day Maya people in Central America. The presentation will provide a visual experience through the remains of several notable Classic Mayan cities; Copan in Honduras, Tikal and Yaxha in Guatemala, and Lamanai in Belize. Observers will be fascinated by seeing things from a fresh viewpoint; dramatic landscapes, volcanic mountains and ruins of ancient temples, close-ups of botanical subjects, animals and birds, as well as a view of today’s colorful Maya people.

Dave Pressler has headed divisions of The American Museum of Natural History in New York, The Field Museum in Chicago, and the Hudson River Museum. He has exhibited widely and his work is in numerous private collections. He is President of SYNAPSIS, a creative marketing communications consulting firm and a Principal in Blackburn Pressler Associates LLC, a corporate identity and branding consultancy.

Founded in 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club is America’s oldest conservation and recreation organization. With more than 100,000 members, advocates, and supporters in the Northeast and beyond, the nonprofit AMC promotes the protection, enjoyment, and stewardship of the mountains, forests, waters, and trails of the Appalachian region. The AMC supports natural resource conservation while encouraging responsible recreation, based on the philosophy that successful, long-term conservation depends upon first-hand enjoyment of the natural environment.
