ABC Pharmacy Expeditions Scheduled.
It's time to get ready for travel! The American Botanical Council, in conjunction with the Texas Pharmacy Foundation and International Expeditions, announces the fifth annual "Pharmacy from the Rainforest" excursion to the Peruvian Amazon, October 31-November 7, 1998. This expedition is dedicated to Dr. Varro Tyler, who has been an important part of these trips over the past five years. An extension trip to the Andes/Machu Picchu after the stay in the rainforest is also offered from November 7-12. Space is limited for Machu Picchu.

Rosita Arvigo's Ix Chel Tropical Plant Research Centre in Belize is a highlight of the "Pharmacy from the Reef & Rainforest" Belize/Tikal (Guatemala) trip scheduled for February 21-28, 1999. This trip also includes an overnight stay at the extensive Mayan ruins at Tikal.

The "Pharmacy on Safari" trip is scheduled for May 28-June 12, 1999, with an exciting new itinerary and destination: South Africa! Mark your calendars!
