Enjoy a speaker, followed by BYO brown bag lunch and conversation. Audubon provides the coffee and tea. The Barbers will share photos and stories from their amazing trip to Argentina and Chile.
Experience the wonders of two of the world’s last great frontiers: the majestic fjords and glaciers of Southern Patagonia and the stunningly dramatic scenery of Torres del Paine. Visit Cape Horn and sail along as Charles Darwin did through the Strait of Magellan, the Beagle Channel, Drake’s Passage and many other estuaries to explore the flora and fauna of this cold rain forest. See ancient glaciers, granite peaks, turquoise lakes and rushing rivers. Marvel at emerald lagoons and the majestic conical snowcapped Osorno Volcano. Then hike with us as we ascend the volcano’s face. Also, enjoy the magnificent beauty of Iguazu Falls, the world’s widest waterfalls. Capture the flavor of Buenos Aires and Santiago, two of South America’s most cosmopolitan cities.
