"The Dark Continent"
with Edna and Neal Van Dorsten


Neal and Edna Van Dorsten will present “The Dark Continent,” an illustrated slide talk on the wildlife and history of southern Africa, on Wednesday, April 26. It is offered as part of the monthly program of the Southern Adirondack Audubon Society in partnership with Adirondack Mountain Club. The program will be held in the Christine L. McDonald Community Room on the lower level of Crandall Library in downtown Glens Falls. The program starts at 7 p.m. and is free to the public.

This presentation will include highlights of their flying safari in southern Africa, including adventures in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Their wildlife photos will include both common and rare birds and animals.  They will also discuss the logistics of the trip, interesting sidelines and problems that may be encountered on a trip like this. They’ll also discuss the cultural diversity and history of that region.

Neal and Edna Van Dorsten reside in Bolton Landing and share a love of travel. Their other recent trips include the Amazon, Alaska and the western United States and Canada. Edna also pursues her love of archaeology and bird watching, and Neal enjoys adventure travel and flying, including self-flying safaris in Africa. The Van Dorstens own a private aircraft, which facilitates many trips to unique and interesting destinations.
