Johnson County Science Cafe’

Observations on Tanzanian Animals, Ecology, and Culture

Speakers: Harry and Charlotte McDonald
Date: December 3, 2013

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Coaches Bar and Grill, 9089 W. 135th Street, one block west of 135th and Antioch, south side of 135th St.

Harry and Charlotte will share their thoughts (and dare we say, insights) on Africa from their trip to Tanzania this fall. They will share their pictures and others from the trip as well as perspectives gained from their personal observations, from information provided by their guide, and from additional research. In the spirit of scientific conversation, all are encouraged to share their own stories and opinions from trips to the Dark Continent.

Harry and Charlotte are retired science teachers, naturalists and avid bird-watchers. Along with the usual cast of characters to be seen in Tanzania, they were able to identify over 160 species of birds and will share stories about many of them. For those of you that remember the tales of Tarzan and references to an elephant graveyard, Harry and Charlotte will suggest one possible inspiration for that legend.

Join us next Tuesday.
