A Virtual Visit to the Galápagos Islands with Alex Green

Date: 03/31/2022
Time: 5:30 pm-6:30 pm

The Norfolk Library welcomes environmental science major Alex Green to take us on a virtual visit to the Galápagos Islands. Alex and 14 others traveled to Quito, Ecuador, and the Galápagos Islands in late December 2021 after the COVID-19 pandemic postponed the trip for two years. This travelogue presentation will focus on the incredible biodiversity and natural beauty of the islands. Alex will share her favorite photos from the trip in chronological order from Quito, San Cristobal Island, Santa Cruz Island, Isabela Island, then back to Santa Cruz and Quito. Pack your bags and get ready to experience the wonders of the Galápagos Islands.

Alex Green is in her last semester as an environmental science major at Berkshire Community College and is an aspiring naturalist and conservation biologist. Her childhood surrounded by nature in Sandisfield, MA, instilled her with an inherent appreciation of all organisms. She grew up saving slugs and newts from the road and climbing to the very tops of hemlock trees. Up until last year, she would have said she wanted to be an ornithologist. Though her love of birds continues, she now wishes to study the smaller and less appreciated organisms of soil and leaf litter communities who are less likely to get the conservation efforts they require.
