International bird guide to present at FENCE

Published 8:00 am Thursday, March 22, 2018

Foothills Equestrian Nature Center welcomes the public to its next Armchair traveler presentation in the great room on Sunday, March 25, at 4 p.m.

Aaron Steed, international traveler and bird guide, will recount his recent travels around Spain.

For many, Spain brings to mind incredible food (especially tapas), world-famous wine and a fascinating history and culture. It is perhaps less widely known as a bird watching or eco-tourism destination, yet it has some of the best bird watching and natural areas in all of Europe.

It is also home to the world’s most endangered feline, the Iberian Lynx.

Join Steed as he details his recent trip through Spain’s picturesque landscapes and charming cobblestone towns in search of birds, wildlife and — last but not least — wine and food.

This event is free and open to the public. Following the presentation refreshments will be served.

The Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation made this event possible.

FENCE is located at 3381 Hunting Country Road in Tryon, North Carolina. For more information about this or upcoming events, call 828-859-9021 or email
