For those of you suffering from cabin fever, the Sierra Club/Huron Valley Group offers a vicarious vacation to one of Earth's most beautiful areas. At this month's public meeting on Tuesday, March 19 (beginning at 7:30 pm), EMU professor and Sierra Club member Gary Hannan will take us on a photographic tour of the Caribbean Sea, both above and below the water line.
Gary's presentation is titled "20,000 Millimeters Under the Sea." He'll take us on an exploration of the amazing diversity of life in the Caribbean basin and describe some of the threats to that diversity and what is being done to protect it. Gary will also share some tips gleaned from a lifetime of experience for those interested in improving their photographic techniques.
Gary's presentation will be followed by our social hour, which features light refreshments and gives you a chance to meet others who share your interests in exploring, enjoying, and protecting nature. You can also learn about local Sierra Club activities including hikes, ski trips, service projects, and a variety of conservation campaigns. If you want to help stop sprawl (at no cost to you!) while buying groceries, books, CDs, and other merchandise at the stores where you already shop, we'll have EarthCash shopping vouchers available for sale by cash or check.
The Sierra Club/Huron Valley Group's monthly public meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at the beautiful Matthei Botanical Gardens, located at 1800 N. Dixboro Road (between Geddes and Plymouth Roads, east of US-23), beginning at 7:30 pm. Meetings are free and open to the public. Newcomers are welcome; no membership is required.
I hope to see you at Tuesday's meeting. Please feel free to forward this message to others who might be interested.
