Birds of Ghana: A West African Experience
May 13, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PMfree
Long time Flathead Audubon member Dan Casey will be the guest speaker at the Monday, May 13 meeting at the Whitefish Community Center from 7-9 pm. Dan joined seven other folks from Montana and Oregon on a 15-day tour of Ghana with Ashanti African Tours in January 2018. The trip was organized and co-lead by Jeff Marks of Montana Bird Advocacy, with part of the cost helping to fund work on Montana bird species. The group found more than 380 species of birds, focusing on the endemic species of the Upper Guinean forest. At our May meeting, Dan will share photo and video highlights of the trip, along with information regarding the culture, history, wildlife, and role of ecotourism dollars in this “Gold Coast” country.
