The community is invited to attend a sustainability lecture this Fall at Folsom Lake College. Professor of Biology Mike Denega will give a presentation entitled "Fins, Feathers and Fur: The Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska" on Wednesday, September 25 from 7-9pm at the El Dorado Center in Placerville in the Community Room (C-102).
Mike Denega has spent four decades teaching El Dorado County students in various capacities. Students have traveled with Mike chasing exotic wildlife in remote parts of Australia, the South Pacific, Central and South Americas, Mexico and North America. In addition to leading field studies expeditions, Mike participates in research projects, especially migratory bird research and management activities in Alaska. His most recent work with Brant Geese in Izembek National Wildlife Refuge ‐‐ at the base of the Aleutian Islands ‐ comes with many good Alaska tales; and photos of the extraordinary wildlife creatures that inhabit Cold Bay and Izenbek Lagoon.
Admission is free (a daily parking pass can be purchased for $1). A map to the El Dorado Center can be found here.
The event is hosted by Biology Professor Dr. Steve Holzberg and the El Dorado County Career Technical Partnership SB70 Sustainability Team. For more information on this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
