Reviews of Tim Palmer's past slideshows

"Tim's words and images bring subjects to life in ways that few speakers can do. He gives a human dimension to complex environmental problems and weaves natural history, geology, sociology, and history into a rich, seamless fabric. My students walk away not only more informed but inspired and yearning to learn more."

                                --Ken Cline, Professor of Environmental Law and Policy, College of the Atlantic


"Tim has it all: great slides, engaging stories, and valuable information for our time. Our audiences love him."

                                            --Jack Shea, Executive Director, Teton Science School
