Submitted by Orcas Senior Center.

Meeting of the Minds on Zoom is back this month with naturalist and caver, Goeff Hoese, who will present “New Species and Habitats in Underground Places.” Focusing on explorations in caves in central Mexico, Belize, Ecuador, and the Galapagos Islands, Geoff will discuss finding and researching species and habitats previously unknown to science. From minute arthropods to meter high plants, the underexplored cave and associated environments support a range of life that is still being documented.

Geoff has been caving worldwide for over 25 years. He has worked with a number of institutions and researchers documenting cave life and habitats and has found and published papers describing new species and habitats from caves in a number of countries.

Come caving with Geoff Wednesday, October 21, 1:00 to 2:00pm. No headlamp required! Attendance is free or with a suggested $5 donation.
