The Birds of Kenya
Nancy Rubenstein Monday, April 15, 2013 8:00PM
Note: This program will be presented in the Choral Room. See here for location and more information.
In this illustrated presentation, Nancy Rubenstein will show us some of the extraordinary birds of Kenya and tell us about conservation efforts undertaken in collaboration with the local population.
Nancy Rubensteinís background is in education, and she taught young children for many years. She has been traveling to Kenya with her husband, Daniel, for thirteen years. The first trips were purely recreational for Nancy, and she got to spend many hours watching and learning about the birds and mammals of East Africa. For the last five years, however, she has been working with Kenyan schoolchildren and teachers in after school conservation clubs in pastoral schools, a project that grew out of her husbandís research.
