from the Stars to the Sea

October 16 26, 2005

featuring Associate Professor of Physics Elizabeth McCormack


Dear Alumnae/i and Friends:


We 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 island.


This 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.


We hope you can join us on this Bryn Mawr-exclusive departure. Space is limited, so make your reservation today!


Warm regards,


Wendy M. Greenfield

Executive Director
