* Board MeetingBoard Meeting

Time: 7:00 pm

The board of the Palouse Audubon Society meets at 7:00pm generally in the Fiske Room of the 1912 Building in Moscow, ID. September through May, first Tuesday of each month. Madagascar, an island off the coast of southern Africa, separated from the continent over 88 million years ago. Since then it has gone its own evolutionary way, with 90% of the plant and animal species found nowhere else on earth. Unlike the Galapagos, it’s heavily populated with people who have a strong and unique culture. In June of 2015, Ron Force and his wife JoEllen travelled to Madagascar on a tour looking for birds and wildlife, which they found. What else they found challenged their ideas about conservation and national development and raised questions which will become more common in a world of climate change and human population growth. Ron’s program “Madagascar, the Eighth Continent” will be presented at 7:00pm [please note the new, earlier start time!]. The program is sponsored by Palouse Audubon Society and is free and open to the public.
