Veracruz River of Raptors Eco Tour ~ Ashland Nature Center

Friday September 29

12:00 AM  –  11:00 PM

September 29 to October 8

Veracruz is little visited by Americans yet is a mecca for Mexicans looking for their roots. It is both a city and state of Mexico, bordered by the Gulf of Mexico to the east and on the West by the Sierra Madre Mountains. It has a wealth of habitats, human history and culture, and importantly for us, the largest migration of hawks in the Western Hemisphere, if not the world. The plains along the coast create vast thermals which transport migrating raptors on their southern journey.  Inland, the hills have woodlands and tropical forests. Further west, desert stretches to the state of Puebla and is the ancient route to Mexico City, home of the Aztec. Just north of the Port of Veracruz is where Hernan Cortes, the Spanish conquistador, landed, hoping to claim the legendary land full of gold and silver. His greed was not for the wealth of Natural History, but it is ours  - we will search for the diverse birds, butterflies, trees, and flora that make this areas rich.
