Arboretum volunteer Rick Pope recently returned from a two-week trip spent exploring the Patagonia region of South America. Seven days of lodge-based hiking revealed stunning views of the iconic mountains of the area including Fitzroy, Cerro Torre and Torres del Paine National Park. The mile-wide face of the Perito Moreno Glacier will also be shown which regularly entertains crowds with thundering ice falls into a lake. A glimpse into the flora and fauna of the parks is provided as well with bird life ranging from flamingos to penguins and the majestic condor. Especially thrilling for Rick was a puma sighting one day. While it was very late summer, there were even a few wildflowers left to seek out and enjoy! Join us for this free event at the Hoyt Arboretum Visitor Center located at 4000 SW Fairview Blvd.
