Costa Rica -- Nature's Paradise
Sept 15th (Whitney Center)
Program description: This program highlights some of the natural wonders, diversity, beauty, and contrasts of Costa Rica. This small country is a paradise for nature lovers and biologists, and for photographers. I will illustrate how the mountains and volcanoes separating the coastal areas lead to microclimates ranging from very wet to very dry, and from tropical to sub-alpine, and some of the flora and fauna characteristic of each. The program shows many places and species, and it also describes of some of the experiences encountered in the preparation of the photo-based book.
