One lake, two lake, red lake, blue lake

Join the Friends of Warner Nature Center and Friends of the St. Croix Watershed Research Station in a special event at the Nature Center on Friday evening, January 20. Research station scientists Jim Almendinger and Mark Edlund will present an illustrated talk on their field expeditions to Mongolia in 2004 and 2005. Entitled "Paddling in Mongolia: One Lake, Two Lake, Red Lake, Blue Lake," their talk will present the history and culture of the land and peoples of Mongolia. The scientific goals of their expeditions, the challenges of conducting field research in remote western Mongolia, and the preliminary findings of their work will be included as well.

Almendinger and Edlund's talk on their first Mongolian expedition, presented in December 2004 at the research station, drew the largest group ever to hear a Friends program. They also presented in a museum brown-bag lunch last year.
