With a pair of binoculars and a notebook, Dr. Jane Goodall traveled from England to the Tanzanian jungle in 1960 at age 26 to study chimpanzees. What she learned changed the way the world viewed primates. Now Coloradans have the chance to hear about her work in primatology and environmentalism firsthand. Goodall will give the 50th annual George Gamow Memorial Lecture at CU Boulder’s Macky Auditorium on Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are free and will available on Thursday at 10 a.m.
