Join April Campbell for a trip to bird-rich Ecuador. Ecuador has 1635 avian species, including such spectacular birds as the Andean Condor, Sunbittern, Hoatzin, and the Galapagos Penguin. A vibrant culture, influenced by Amerindians and Spanish colonists, along with beautiful landscapes, makes Ecuador a frequent destination for birders and other visitors.

Come at 7:10pm for a chance to talk with fellow birders, and enjoy snacks before the program begins.

WAS programs are free and open to the public. Membership is not required, though we would welcome your membership to help with our environmental and educational activities. Programs are held on the third Wednesday of the month at the U-M Matthaei Botanical Gardens, 1800 Dixboro Road, Ann Arbor. In addition to the program, hear news of the latest critter sightings and field trips, and enjoy tasty snacks following the program. Please note: The Matthaei Botanical Gardens charges for parking at the rate of $1.20 an hour, enforced 7 days a week from 8am to 8pm.
