Madagascar Photo Safari

Thursday, February 9, Montrose Field House, 7:00 p.m. Madagascar! Just the name evokes exotic images of nature, leaping lemurs, bulbous Baobab trees, crawling chameleons, rare reptiles, and brightly colored birds. Join us for a photo “safari” by Renée Herring, a retired CPW Watchable Wildlife Coordinator, to explore some wildlife riches found on the island that time forgot. We visited the varied landscapes of rainforests, spiny deserts, lakes and dry forests. Ninety percent of Madagascar’s plant and animal species are found nowhere else on earth.
