The Sea of Cortez, Baja
Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens
Thu, Sep 29, 2011 - Thu Oct 6, 2011, 1:15am - 1:15am
Wednesday, October 5, 7pm
Come and spend the evening looking at a very different landscape - wonderful plants and exciting animals and birds as seen through the eyes of well-known naturalist and photographer, Jane Ruffin.
In the 1960's, Jane read John Steinbeck's book, The Log of the Sea of Cortez. She enjoyed it so much that she made a mental note that one day she would like to make a visit. The yeras passed, and then, a short while ago, Jane saw an advertisement for a tour of Baja, California. Two wonderful adventures later, Jane looks back on the boat tours of Baja and is very happy that she was able to visit the area.
The Gulf of California, or the Sea of Cortez, runs about 700 miles down the west coast of Mexico. There is little rain and the landscape is arid. Starting at Loreto, about two-thirds of the way down the Gulf, Jane set off on a boat, sailing south to La Paz. There were island expeditions to explore plants and wildlife, swimming with sea lions and small boat adventures to watch wildlife and birds flying all around. Please join Jane for a feast of activity and wildlife as seen in her exquisite photographs.
Free of Charge. All are welcome.
