Come play a game or two and learn a few moves from other players in this relaxed, supportive atmosphere. Boards & pieces will be available, but attendees are also encouraged to bring their own.

6:30 p.m.: Kazakhstan: A Birding Frontier with the Green Mountain Audubon Society – The Kaestner brothers set out to see the specialty birds of this central Asian country, almost unknown to American birders.  You will see birds from the high mountains of the western Himalayas in the south to the turanga forests of the semi-desert central part of the country, to the central Asian grassland steppes of the north. Join them as they seek the seldom-observed birds of this very unique country.

Kazakhstan: A Birding Frontier with the Green Mountain Audubon Society

The Kaestner brothers set out to see the specialty birds of this central Asian country, almost unknown to American birders.  You will see birds from the high mountains of the western Himalayas in the south to the turanga forests of the semi-desert central part of the country, to the central Asian grassland steppes of the north.

THE SPEAKER:  Hank Kaestner has been birding from an early age and in his 70 plus years has racked up a life list of over 7000 species!  As a buyer for McCormick & Co., the world’s largest spice company, and recently as an independent consultant, Hank has been able to travel widely.  He has also birded with his wife, Josie, and brother, Peter, who works for the U.S. State Department.  His passion for birding has taken him around the world and in this program about Kazakhstan, you can experience a taste of it!
