H. Dutcher Community Room

Date: Wednesday, September 28
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Birding in Belize

Birder and photographer Kevin Watson will present some of the almost 600 species that have been recorded in the small country of Belize, as well as an introduction to some of the prime birding locations and some “dos and don’ts” for first-time visitors. Just a short flight from the U.S., Belize is an ideal destination for birders. Belize still has large tracts of protected rain-forest, as well as dry savannah, wetlands and a world-famous tropical reef. No registration required.
