Alumnae/i and Friends:
are pleased to offer an exciting and in-depth natural history
excursion that explores primordial Hawaii , an isolated archipelago
where nature still reigns. I invite you to join Bryn Mawr
Associate Professor of Physics Elizabeth McCormack and local
naturalists on a fascinating journey that explores Kauai,
the oldest major island, Maui, and the Big Island, the youngest
natural history excursion experiences the volcanic activity
that created this island chain, and we observe dramatic volcanic
landscapes and witness vivid examples of ongoing volcanic
activity on Kilauea Volcano. We also examine the heavens from
atop Mount Haleakala and 13,000-foot Mauna Kea . At sea level
we discover a teeming wonderland of tropical marine life during
snorkeling cruise. The program also includes visits to wildlife
refuges and botanical gardens to see Hawaii 's endemic and
endangered species and learn about the effects of evolution
on flora and fauna, and an authentic luau to experience Hawaiian
heritage. Throughout the program we fully enjoy Hawaii 's
amazing variety of topography by alternating our stays between
beachfront and interior mountain accommodations.
hope you can join us on this Bryn Mawr-exclusive departure.
