Looking for an excuse to get out of the house, make some new friends, enjoy a good meal and learn about the exciting world of nature? Then join us! These programs are held the first Tuesday of each month. The nature program will start at 11:00 a.m. at the Jester Park Lodge. An optional luncheon follows the program at noon in which pre-registration is required. The cost of the catered lunch by The Radish is $10.

In the Southern Atlantic Ocean, nestled half-way between the tips of South America and Africa, is a 100 mile long island archipelago featuring unrivaled alpine beauty. It’s also a wildlife paradise, with beaches crowded with battling bull Elephant and Fur Seals, vying for space with several species of penguins, often numbering in the hundreds of thousands! This British protectorate, once a headquarters for the South Atlantic whaling fleet, is now  managed as a pristine environment, serving as home to more than 100 million birds, including several species of Albatross and  myriad other bird species.  We will see and learn about the many animals inhabiting this magical place, as we ply the scenic bays, aboard the Ortelius, an expedition ship, built to navigate some of the roughest seas in the world. Come join us for an educational and stunningly beautiful presentation. Register for lunch only; deadline is April 1. $10. To register for lunch, click here.
