King Penguins / Photo by Bob Lewis,

Come with Bob Lewis to South Georgia Island, a four-day voyage by sea east of the southernmost city in the world. There, you will be introduced to the island's abundant wildlife: hundreds of thousands of penguins, thousands of albatross, uncountable fur and elephant seals, giant petrels, sheathbills, and skuas. Bob will show the large size of the breeding colonies and the spectacular surrounding landscape. He will also touch on the history of the islands, including the voyage of Ernest Shackleton, and will make a stop at the Falkland Islands to experience additional fascinating species.

Bob Lewis, chair of the GGAS Adult Education Committee and longtime popular GGAS instructor and field trip leader, is known for his portfolio of wildlife photography reflecting his travels around the world. He is also a coordinator of the Oakland Christmas Bird Count.

7 p.m. refreshments, 7:30 p.m. program Free for GGAS members, $5 nonmembers.
