Sedona AZ (February 1, 2013) – Lynne Leakey, who will guide a Yavapai College EDventures tour to Kenya later this year, will deliver a free presentation of her extensive African experiences on Friday, February 15, 1 p.m. in Room 28 of the Sedona Center for Arts & Technology, 4215 Arts Village Drive in Sedona. Because of limited seating, reservations are required and can be made by calling 928-717-7755.
Leakey, who calls Sedona home when she is not in Africa, has observed and studied the wildlife, ecology and people of central Africa throughout her career. She leads custom safaris and lectures regularly on topics such as the social behavior of elephants, the Maasai people and the national parks of East Africa.
Leakey will be the naturalist guide for the EDventures safari to Kenya, August 7-19, 2013. This unique safari combines wildlife viewing with cultural exchanges and educational service to schools and orphanages. With a focus on children’s education, EDventures travelers will visit local villages and schools and work directly with the children. Other highlights include a visit to a women’s beading cooperative that helps finance childhood education, a visit to an elephant orphanage to interact directly with the animals, a tour of a tea and coffee farm, and guided tours of the Nairobi National Museum and the Karen Blixen house, whose namesake is the author and central character of the movie “Out of Africa.”
Details of the August tour are available online (http://www.yc.edu/v4content/lifelong-learning/edventures/) or by calling 928-717-7755.
