AAS July Member Meeting, July 27, 3:30 - 5:30 PM 

Cafe Campesino's Birding/Coffee Tour of Guatemala

 

Join AAS members and guests at Manuel's Tavern, 602 North Highland Ave., as we welcome Café Campesino’s Nema Etheridge and avid birder and humanitarian Clive Rainey. Our daily cup of coffee is linked to the health of migratory bird habitat, the preservation of ancient societies and the conservation of tropical ecosystems. Nema and Clive will explain the connections as they discuss their recent Guatemala trip that led Cafe Campesino customers to meet coffee farmers and to see more than 100 species of birds. They will address the importance of shade-grown coffee to bird habitat, outline the requirements for bird friendly certification, talk about a devastating fungus that is killing coffee trees and share stories and pictures from Cafe Campesino's Birding and Coffee Tour of Guatemala.
