An around-the-world trip in a private plane, with a focus on birds.
- General Admission: Free
Mather AuditoriumThis event is handicap accessible
Becky Marvil, her husband Josh (the pilot), and two other couples spent 30 days traveling around the world in a private plane. Their route took them from the USA to Newfoundland, the Azores, Turkey, Oman, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Taiwan, Russia, and Alaska.
In addition to sightseeing and learning about different cultures, Becky’s background in biology and ornithology caused her to focus on the birds, photographing and videotaping many species, and learning about their regional family variations AND similarities from one stop to the next. From the volcanic islands of the Azores to the 106-degree heat of Oman to the chilly, drizzly coast of Alaska, she will show her beautiful photos and reveal stories of bird species from around the globe! Come early for refreshments and social time. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by York County Audubon.
