Shiripuno Lodge - the heart of Amazonian Ecuador

Dennis and Cecille Thompson spent a week last fall at Shiripuno Lodge in the
lowlands of Amazonian Ecuador. The lodge is within the tribal grounds of
the Waorani nation which adjoins Yasuni National Park. A six-hour motorized
canoe ride was required to reach the lodge. No electricity or hot water
made for a true "away from it all" experience. This is Amazonian forest
that is not seasonally flooded and has a whole range of rare or little-known
neotropical species. Antbirds, toucans, jacamars, puffbirds and other
exotics were routinely encountered. Join Dennis and Cecille for a peek at a
beautiful wilderness area that few get to visit.

Des Moines Audubon meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and are held in the lunchroom
of the Northwest Community Center, which is located at 51st and Franklin
Avenue in Des Moines. The Center is just west of Franklin Library. There
is ample parking and the building is accessible. If you have questions
about this meeting place, please contact Jane Clark at 515-223-5047.
