Sierra Club Presents ‘Promise of Panama’ May 9

The Crescenta Valley Sierra Club will present Gabrielle and Patrick Reynolds’ “The Promise of Panama” on Tuesday, May 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the Los Angeles County Public Library in La Crescenta.
The Reynolds have been investigating the promise of Panama with extended trips for the past year.
Their travels have largely focused on the highlands of Chiriqui Province, though the Caribbean and Pacific beaches also have factored into their exploration. As a traveler there, Gabrielle refers to it as “Latin American Lite,” meaning it is easy to navigate, communicate and investigate even for non-Spanish-speakers, with the added ease of using U.S. currency.
She suggests cost-effective, tourist-friendly Panama may be the best choice for an “exotic,” destination. In Central America, volcanos, waterfalls, monkeys, toucans and quetzals compete with “first-world foodie paradise” in Panama City.
The program begins following club news of Conservation and Outings. This is a free program and everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call Gail Adams at (626) 791-1111. The library is located at 2809 Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta.
