Lyle makes Nisqually Wildlife Refuge presentation

4/2/2001
April 2, 2001

On April 5th, Laurina Lyle, Environmental Education Coordinator, Center of Excellence for Field Biology at APSU, will give a slide presentation about the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge in Washington state. The presentation will be given at 7:30 PM in McCord Bldg, Room 102 and is sponsored by the Warioto Audubon Chapter.

Lyle's program will highlight the natural history of the Nisqually River Delta. The Nisqually River is unique to most rivers in the United States in that its headwater and delta are both under federal protection. The headwaters start from glaciers in Mt. Rainier National Park; the river flows for 80 miles before reaching the delta in Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge before emptying into Puget Sound.

Lyle's talk is the result of a two-week study she made last summer while assessing the environmental educational mission of the refuge. For more information contact Sally Schiller 6335.
