Yes, it’s virtual, but we’ll be coming together once again on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Everyone is welcome to attend these virtual talks, but pre-registration will be required. Stay tuned for more details to come via email and on the MRVAC website over the next few days.

MRVAC board member Lee Ann Landstrom will tell us about the unique landscapes, wildlife and birds of in “The Pantanal Region of Brazil” Thursday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. on Zoom.  As Africa does, the region has savannah grasslands – but they’re seasonally flooded ranches! The “big five” animals are jaguars, giant river otters, maned wolves, tapirs and giant anteater. She’ll show us unique landscapes, wildlife and birds of this lesser-known wildlife haven. Lee Ann Landstrom is a retired nature center director and international traveler.

October’s program will be Laura Erickson’s “The Love Lives of Birds:  Courting and Mating Rituals.”
