The Williams Lake Field Naturalists will hold their fall social and pot-luck supper tonight, Friday, Oct. 18 starting at 6 p.m. at the Scout Island Nature Centre.
Members and non-members are welcome to attend. Bring a dish to share and be ready to enjoy good conversation and a short armchair trip to Spain.
Following the dinner new members Paula Laita and Jon Gaztelumendi from Basque Country in Northern Spain will share some of their experiences in a presentation called Transport to Spain: A Paradise for Birders and Wildlife Enthusiasts.
Spain has a wide range of ecosystems and landscapes due to its variation in the local geography and topography and the diverse climates present in many regions.
The proximity of the different habitats, especially in migration corridors, leads to a rich mixture of bird species.
