Nature PEI’s next monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday December 6, 2022 at 7:30 pm featuring Jeanne Maki who will present Nature Highlights of Columbia. Location: Beaconsfield, the Carriage House, corner of West and Kent St, Charlottetown. Admission is free and all are welcome.
Jeanne Maki will take us to beautiful Colombia, a country with 1,954 species of birds and many national parks. Jeanne became interested in Latin America at an early age and followed an eclectic path to satisfy her interest in different cultures, nature, and photography. A move to PEI at the age of 21, completing her BA in Latin American Studies and MA in Teaching ESL, a weekend course in photography from John Sylvester, and taking part in the Christmas Bird Count years ago, all contributed to her lifelong learning. Jeanne is a member of Nature PEI, a Conservation Guardian for Island Nature Trust, and continues to serve on the boards for a number of conservation organizations.
