Mike & Laura Jackson, Mark Bonta, and Emilio Garcia will share adventures and conservation projects, as well as photos of beautiful birds, from a recent trip to Honduras, organized and led by Mark Bonta, JVAS Vice-President. Honduras is a country with many birds and habitats that need our help. The trip featured stops at National Parks, protected areas, and even backyards where residents manage their property for bird conservation. Highlights of the trip included a visit to Rio Santiago to revel in the hundreds of hummingbirds and a tour of shade-grown organic coffee farms in the Marcala Region. One of the farmers, Emilio Garcia, markets his Café Lenca coffee in Pennsylvania and he will be on hand to talk about his efforts to grow sustainable coffee that is bird-friendly. Café Lenca coffee will be on sale after the talk.
