Next Meeting

 February 19:Visions of Ecuadorian Flora and Fauna
This month Gregg DeChirico will be the speaker. Gregg is a life-long plant hobbyist, having grown plants of all types for over 30 years. Traveling West to East, from pacific lowlands of Guayaquil across the Andes to Amazonian highlands of Zamora, then South to North from dry hills of Vilcabamba to the wet forests surrounding Quito, we crisscross the country in search of bromeliads, orchids and other botanical treasures, with some interesting “close-encounters” of the avian kind. With 16 vegetative ecozones, from mangrove marsh to montane cloud forest, and savanna to lowland Amazon basin; Ecuador is a nature photographer’s paradise!
