An Ecuadorian and Galápagos Island Adventure

Galapagos Tortoise

The Galápagos Islands are well known as the place Charles Darwin visited while traveling as (an unpaid) naturalist aboard the HMS Beagle. His observations over the five-day study of the islands provided the seeds of thought that became the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. The Galápagos Archipelago was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978, and the residents and officials there make great efforts to preserve, protect and restore the area.

In April of 2014 a group of local Sierra Club (SEGG and Great Waters) members traveled to Ecuador, including a one-week stay on the San Jose navigating among the Islands, viewing the wildlife and learning about its history and biodiversity. Join us to view our photos of Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands as we learn more about this special area and its grand diversity of landforms and wildlife.

If you bring a “Galápagos” themed snack to share, e.g. chocolate turtles, you will be eligible for a prize that will go to the favorite entry.

We are meeting at 6:30 pm at the SCJohnson/Gateway Technical College IMET Center, 2320 Renaissance Blvd., Sturtevant.
