Aleta will take us on a photo tour of her recent trip to the island state of Tasmania, a fragile and beautiful environment with rich biodiversity, which includes grasslands, evergreen eucalypt forest, alpine heathlands, rainforests and moorlands. We will look at some of the endemic bird species such as the Tasmanian Native Hen and the Yellow Wattlebird.
Aleta Mueller is a gardener, hiker, and general outdoors enthusiast. In 1980, her final quarter of college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, she took an ornithology class, which sparked a fascination with birding. She and her husband have enjoyed rural living in Snohomish County since 1982.
