Earth Day plans? Pie and Páramo, a speaker eventEvent date: Apr. Friday 21
Ever wanted to explore Ecuador’s wild alpine grasslands with a pioneer and scholar?
Fundación Cordillera Tropical is proud to present Dr. Stuart White, geographer, field course instructor, owner/operator of the Mazar Wildlife Preserve in Cañar province, and longtime Cuenca resident, in a public presentation on his adventures in the páramo, the iconic alpine grasslands of the Andes. Stu takes audiences on a virtual journey into the Ecuadorian páramo, his tales weaving natural history, hunter-gatherer ingenuity, and science’s reconstruction of this ancient landscape. Relax and enjoy a local, place-based take on honoring Earth Day, accompanied by refreshments and Stu’s breathtaking photos of this untrammeled wilderness.
