Reservations are not required.
Lee Stein will discuss and present photos of the birds and wildlife from a recent trip to the Galapagos Islands, as well as from the Virea Wetlands and Merritt Island Preserve of Central Florida
Lee will present photos and discuss a recent trip to Ecuador where he spent a week in the Amazon, then seven nights on a small ship at the Galapagos Islands. Activities included taking guided trips to the islands, snorkeling, and photographing the unique birds and wildlife. To round out the program, Lee will also present photos of birds and wildlife of eastern central Florida where he spends about half the year.
Lee has always had a fascination with nature and claims to have a need to be outside. His interest in photography began in the 1970s and was nurtured by several courses at JCC in film photography. Lee recently joined the digital era with the purchase of a DSLR camera and membership in the Brevard County photo club. An avian photographer mentors Lee and he considers himself lucky to live near several avian wetlands. As snowbirds, Lee and his wife spend about half the year in Lakewood, New York and the other half in the Melbourne, Florida area.
