Chucanti: Preserving a Cloud Forest - Guido Berguido

All Guido Berguido wanted to do was see all the birds of his native Panama. Fifteen years ago, he began taking birders to a remote mountain top in which he had been finding birds never before reported from that part of the country. Each time he went, there was less and less forest to explore. Guido realized that unless something was done, the cloud forest of that sky island, Cerro Chucantí, would disappear—and that it would be up to him to save it.  Join us – to hear his inspiring story, a dream that is now emerging from dreamland.

Meeting held in visitor center theater room - drive all the way up Hetzler Road to the top of hill. 

Parking - free parking in upper lot adjacent to the visitors center
