Discover the Birds of Costa Rica with Peter Christoph
 Have you ever wondered why over 600 birds call Costa Rica their home year round? Due to its diverse topography, this tropical nation contains several life zones supporting a wide variety of birds, from tiny iridescent hummingbirds to colorful toucans. Discover Costa Rica’s national treasures with a top wildlife photographer as he travels by boat through mangrove swamps and wetlands, and hikes into lush rainforests on the side of a volcano in search of wildlife. By sharing these remarkable photographs, Peter hopes you will develop a deeper appreciation for the birds, animals, and plants that inhabit this fragile tropical paradise where the rainforest meets the sea. Registration is required. Register here or call the Information Services Department at 978-399-2304.
