Tree Walkers International (TWI) is proud to present MICROCOSM, a celebration of the beauty and uniqueness of ecosystems through the keeping of naturalistic vivariums and aquariums. MICROCOSM is a new kind of event that brings together enthusiasts from a wide variety of interests--some of them the best specialists from their respective genres--in order to promote overlap between hobbies and celebrate the diversity of the planet on which we live.
The two-day event includes lectures, excursions, workshops, a vendor sale and a live auction. All proceeds will directly support amphibian conservation through the programs and grants of Tree Walkers International. For more information about TWI, visit TreeWalkers.org.
