SG-W:/ Where the Bison and Biologists Roam: Summer in Yellowstone Park -- Tuesday, March 20



Friends,

Yellowstone National Park is unequaled as a beautiful place full of biological and geological wonders,  Yellowstone was the first -- and in many ways still the best -- of America's national parks.  But Yellowstone is more than just a stunning nature area.  It's also a research laboratory, and a miniature city where 3,000 people work each summer.

Please join us at the Sierra Club-Huron Valley Group's free public program this Tuesday, March 20 to for Where the Bison and Biologists Roam -- Summer in Yellowstone Park, presented by Dave Brooks.

Dave's will explore Yellowstone's legendary natural beauty and wildlife, including the bison and wolves that make the park their home.  He will also explain how scientists make use of Yellowstone as a field laboratory, and discuss the challenges of creating the temporary community that makes Yellowstone National Park run each summer.

Newcomers are welcome to this family-friendly event, which begins at 7:30 pm at the lovely Matthaei Botanical Gardens (map).
 
After the presentation, we invite you to stay for refreshments and mingle with friendly people who share your interest in nature.  You can learn about local Sierra Club activities like hiking, skiing, and our conservation projects.

We'll have Sierra Club coffee, and tea, and EarthCash shopping vouchers available for purchase by cash or check.  With EarthCash you can help stop sprawl when you shop at many of your favorite stores -- at no additional cost to you. 

All are welcome; no membership is required.    Please feel free to forward this message to others who might be interested.
