Andy Mason and Peg DiBenedetto will present a program
about the recent DOAS supported ornithological trip in the
Dominican Republic. In January the pair, along with Dr. Peter
Fauth of Hartwick College and two others, traveled to the DR
to conduct a week-long avian inventory of a cocoa plantation
in the northwest area of Guananico. This resulted in specific
recommendations to the plantation’s owners on how to improve habitat, and the potential for ecotourism.
Enjoy photos and stories of the mountainous surroundings, the plantation, and the group as they discovered which species are using this important but threatened region.
7:30pm at the Elm Park Church, 401 Chestnut Street, Oneonta.
