The Modderfontein Conservation Society’s (MCS) November evening meeting will take place on November 16.
Ornithologist, bird artist, tour guide and raconteur, Clive Hopcroft has stepped in at short notice after the scheduled speaker pulled out due to unforeseen circumstances.
Following a recent tour to Nepal, Clive was persuaded to continue on to Tibet to help organise a large group of culture tourists.
As a result, he has compiled an enlightening and amusing talk, Treading Through Tibet.

The meeting will take place at the Modderfontein Town Hall, 1 Casino Road at 7:30 pm.
While Clive is well known for his informative and entertaining talks on birds and their doings, this talk is more about the people of the country, the Tibetan landscape, visiting the capital Lhasa, the Potala Palace, Everest Base Camp, many monasteries and a few of the birds that he managed to see as he traveled across the country.

He has been an Edenvale resident for many years and has presented many talks to the MCS in the past 15 years.
The popularity of his talks can be gauged by the large number of people who have attended his past presentations.
