AAS Program: Down Under

  • Port Townsend Community Center 620 Tyler Street Port Townsend (map)

Johanna King will be showing photos from her recent trip to Australia. She spent about a month in the eastern part of the country, traveling from the Daintree River in the north to Melbourne in the south. She visited a wide range of habitats, ranging from ocean beaches to cloud forests to the flatlands of the outback. She saw an astounding 328 species of birds, of which fewer than 20 were familiar to her. And she learned that the term “kangaroo” is far too generic, as there are many species!  She even saw a platypus!  Come and enjoy this look at the natural history of Down Under.  The public is invited.
