OLLI Course Catalog > ---- Brown Bag Presentations

A Night in the Amazon (Braintree Only)  

This presentation is a fun trek through the Peruvian Amazon led by novelist Erica Ferencik. After a brief reading from her new bestselling novel, Into the Jungle, the author will show slides and tell stories from her month-long research trip to the rainforests of Peru. Dinner-plate sized spiders and limo-length anacondas are just a couple of the stunning creatures that make the rainforest their home. She will discuss the amazing plants and animals of the Amazon, as well as its shocking history and the current threats to its very existence from the corporate predation of its natural resources to the devastating effects of climate change.
