                   Dr. Liz Walsh, UTEP

Join Sierra Club’s Liz Walsh for a presentation on her recent trip to
SouthWild Amazon Lodge, a cutting-edge rainforest conservation and reforestation project. The French govern-ment’s Forest Service purchased the property about 25 years ago. At that time, 6,000 acres (nearly 10 square miles) was unproductive cattle pasture. It has since been replanted with millions of trees. Wildlife is rebounding with harpy eagle nests, umbrella birds, hoatzins, Brazilian tapirs, and more!

The meeting will be hybrid, starting at 7 pm.  In person is at the Centennial Museum and online is on Zoom.  Register for the Zoom link

The El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon  Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society.  We have a large territory, all of Texas west of the Pecos River ("Trans-Pecos").  Our members are found throughout the Trans-Pecos, but most live in the region's largest city, El Paso.  Birds, birding, wildlife, the environment, and our community are the concerns of the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society.
