Title: "Return to the Lost World: Bromeliads of Roraima Tepui and the Grand Sabana"

Cristy Brenner is a Geography professor at Saddleback College and President of the Saddleback Valley Bromeliad Society. She frequently travels to Central and South America to observe Bromeliads in their native habitat. Cristy will show slides of her second trip to the tepui region of Venezuela, (July, 2013). The trek up Mt. Roraima, the highest of more than one hundred tepuis (mesas), provided the opportunity to view many unusual Bromeliads, orchids, and other plants that are only found on the tepuis. The summit of the 9,000' high mesa is a bizarre landscape of ancient rock formations and unusual plants. After the trek down the mountain, and a flight to Auyan tepui, the trip continued to Canaima lagoon and waterfall. The highlight of this area was a boat trip and hike to the base of Angel Falls, the world's highest waterfall. Bromeliad genera observed on this trip to Venezuela include Ananas, Billbergia, Brocchinia, Connellia, Guzmania, Lindmania, Navia, Neoregelia, Pitcairnia, Puya, Racinea, Tillandsia, and Vriesea.
