Come early for social hour.
Our speaker will be Olga Clarke who will speak on Highlights of Costa Rica. 

Olga Clarke, a world class birder, has led COSTA RICA BIRDING ADVENTURES natural history trips to many parts of the world, including numerous ones to Africa and most other continents over the past three decades. In addition, she served as Director of the Los Angeles Audubon Society’s famous bookstore for almost 30 years, and now has assumed the position of that Society’s Travel Director.

Olga will present highlights of Costa Rica, with views of the birds and other wildlife.  Within habitats that range from semi-arid ranchlands, to misty cloud forests, lowland rainforest, and treeless páramo, share some of the experiences seen in that tiny county known by birders as one of the top destinations in the world. Costa Rica is an excellent introduction to Neotropical birding.
