When: Friday, January 11, 2019 from 1:30 – 3 PM 

Where: Almonte Branch, Mississippi Mills Public Library, 155 High Street, Almonte, ON

Enjoy two short presentations by people who have travelled to the southern hemisphere recently.

MVFN members Sherryl and Bob Smith will show a selection of photographs from their recent trip to South Africa. They will focus on features of the landscape and environment at different elevations. And yes, there will be pictures of flora and fauna.

Our second presenter is Lauren Bazley, a recent graduate of Trent University who spent two field seasons at the Tambopata Research Center, Peru, working on the Tambopata Macaw Project. This is a long-term multidisciplinary study of natural history, conservation and management of large macaws and parrots. For more information see https://www.perunature.com/about-rainforest/macaw-project/.
