Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) will hold its next Armchair Traveler program at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 1.
Wild Birds Unlimited owners Simon Thompson and Chris Jaquette have spent four weeks hiking and birding throughout Chile. Thompson said Chile was a delightful country to explore, from the Atacama Desert in Arica in Chile’s far north through the central wine country to the penguin colonies and glaciers of Patagonia, and it was surprisingly easy as independent travelers. Thompson will share photos and experiences from this trip.
The event will also include a special wine tasting from the local Parker-Binns Vineyard located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains.
This event is made possible by the Kirby Foundation at PCCF.
