7 pm. Iceland, often called "The Land of Fire and Ice" because of its many volcanoes, glaciers, and spectacular waterfalls, is also a noted birder's paradise famous for the Atlantic puffins, ptarmigan, arctic terns, gyrfalcons, and other birds found along its 3,700 miles of coast. Reindeer, arctic fox, humpback whales, and seals can frequently be seen, and purebred Icelandic horses, Icelandic sheep, and goats roam the farmlands. Naturalists and photographers Barbara and Peter Rzasa will present a slide show of Icelandic birds, wildlife, and farm animals. On display will be their collection of volcanic rocks and ash as well as guidebooks, literature and nature field guides. Join us for this FREE overview of Iceland and its natural history.
