This year the Annual Sunday Field Trip took Board Members to the east coast and into the Nariva Swamp. Following an interesting Bird Watching session in the flat farmland area, the group arrived at the Forestry Division’s Nariva Swamp Field Station where they enjoyed a PowerPoint presentation delivered by Reynaldo Phillip, Forester 1, on the work of the Division within the Nariva Swamp Wildlife Sanctuary.
Following a magnificent curry lunch catered by the Asa Wright kitchen staff, the party set off to embark by small dinghies through a maze of mangrove roots and swamp grasses to Bush Bush Island. A tour of the island revealed many interesting birds as well as clear views of the Red Howler and Capuchin monkeys.
Nariva Swamp – can you see it? Board Member Bob Thomas obviously did!
