Warm yourself with a bowl of soup while enjoying camaraderie and conversation at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary! Soup Lunch takes place the THIRD Tuesday of each month from January to April. Each month features a different guest speaker, along with a delicious lunch of soup, crackers, cheese, and dessert provided by Hunt Hill.

Please note some changes in 2023: Registration is not required, but strongly encouraged in 2023. Due to Hunt Hill providing the food rather than it being donated by volunteers, we will be charging a program fee for Soup Lunch in 2023.

Time: 12:00-1:30 PM

Imagine exploring Mexico, Central and South America for two-and-half years…while living out of a van! In 2017, Christi Spak and Boris Mahlich did just that- turning a 1999 Ford van into a “casa rodante” (rolling house) and leaving careers, family, friends, and the English language behind for an epic mid-life departure from their comfort zones. Join us to hear Christi share some of the highlights, lowlights, and insights of their overlanding journey.
