Ivan Thompson will give an illustrated presentation to the Sunshine Coast Natural History Society (SCNHS) on Feb. 7.
The presentation, which starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt, will describe a recent visit to Slovenia and Croatia.
The driving trip started from Trieste in NE Italy, and then going through Ljublijana, Lake Bled and a visit to the Julian Alps. A tour of Croatia followed, by visiting, among other areas, the Istrian Peninsula, the UNESCO Heritage Site of Plitvice National Park and ending finally in a a jewel-of-the-trip-visit to the
fabulously beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik.

He is also a keen promoter of adult education and is active in the affairs of Eldercollege (recently renamed ElderU) on the Sunshine Coast.
