educational sessions

Post by xyzoptics » Tue Jun 20, 2017 6:20 am

I was out on the island two years ago at Daisy Farm and there was a little half hour session with one of the scientists on the island. It was really neat. I'm wondering if anyone knows when those are offered and if there are any other events like that at different locations.

You can check the park news letter. ... r_2017.pdf

Look on page eight.

When the Peterson's give their presentation at Daisy Farm it was usually on a Wednesday evening, although there could be times when both of them are away and it might not be offered. I'm not sure if there is still a bulletin board at Daisy Farm. The next scheduled talk would be posted there or ask a ranger when you arrive or see one.
