IRON COUNTY—The Iron County Chapter of the Audubon Society will meet at the museum in Caspian on Monday, June 9 at 7 p.m. 
The speaker will be retired public defender Ann Munninghoff Eshelman of Rhinelander, Wis.  After more than 30 years of battling in courtrooms, she was ready for a change. On a whim, she headed to remote northeastern Cambodia to work at a sanctuary for elephants that were worn down by decades of hard labor in the logging business and by brutal treatment.
Eshelman worked with a remarkable international group of young people dedicated to making these elephants’ last year’s comfortable, healthy, and as free-roaming as possible.
She relates with passion and humor daily life with the elephants, and how the experience has had a lasting effect on her own life.
Society members will also be saying farewell to their past president Beth Tiller, who served the chapter for more than 20 years.  She is leaving Iron County to pursue new opportunities in Minnesota. 
The public is invited.  There is no charge.
