Past Event October 2015 -Nicaragua: Land of Volcanoes, Birds and Coffee

  • NC State University Club 4200 Hillsborough St Raleigh, NC, 27606 United States (map)

Speaker: John Gerwin

Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America but the least known when it comes to its birds. While its coffee is more familiar to us, many consumers remain confused by the various labels used today. Join Research Curator John Gerwin from the Museum of Natural Sciences as he helps clear up the coffee confusion. He will also highlight some of the birds of the coffee-growing region. John does research on the life cycles of migratory birds, with a focus on breeding biology. He has been co-leading annual ecotours to Nicaragua since 2005 and has been engaged in bird-banding activities there since 2010.

Lunch includes: Classic Caesar, Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Garlic Demi Glaze, Rice Pilaf, Sautéed Squash, Bread, Tea, Water, Coffee, and a member-supplied dessert.
