Jim Pease | Wild Africa from A to Z: Adventures in Kenya and Tanzania
On the "bucket list we never thought we'd get to", Jim and Cindy Pease spent 30 days on safari in 2016. Among the many memories are antelopes to zebras and everything in between, including lots of birds. Come see a small fraction of their 16,000 photos and hear their stories.
Our annual season-ending wrap-up will have two parts to it this year. We will start the day at 8:00 AM with a tour of Story County's brand new Jordan Family Wildlife Area (where 265th St crosses the South Skunk River, south of Ames). We will then move on to Hickory Grove Park (SSW of Colo) for birding and a potluck brunch. Bring a food item. Plates, utensils, and napkins may also come in handy.
