November 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
At the Hudson River Maritime Museum Riverport Boat School meeting room. Meet and mingle with new and old JBNHS friends and enjoy the program by Dixon Onderdonk: ” My presentation will include highlights of cultural and biological experiences of three weeks in Northern Tanzania and Zanzibar . I will share wildlife (birds and mammals primarily) encountered on safari in five national parks (Arusha, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Jozani), the Ngorongoro Conservation Area including the Ngorongoro Crater. In addition I will discuss visits to various tribes and provide information about The School of Saint Jude’s where we spent the first six days of the trip.” (Dixon’s short essay “Three Weeks in Northern Tanzania” in the March-April 2018 Chirp gave us a taste of this trip.) Come and learn much more from Dixon in person, with his photographs as well. Dixon started and coordinates the JBNHS Coffee Club and is a current Board member of JBNHS. There will be refreshments and a brief business meeting.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
