Education :: Lecture
Glacier Institute presents John Ashley
6:00 PM
Conrad Mansion Museum

On April 3, 2014, the Conrad Mansion Museum, in partnership with Glacier Institute, will be hosting a lecture by John Ashley on harlequin ducks. In Glacier Park, harlequin ducks are as rare as grizzly bears, as secretive as goshawks, and as specialized as mountain goats. The Pacific Harlequin is the only duck in the world that divides its time between the cold mountain streams of Glacier National Park and the heavy surf of coastal waters. Sharing the remarkable breeding pattern of the salmon, in order to breed the harlequins return each year to the same stream where they hatched.
John earned his B.A. in Biology with an emphasis in Natural History from the University of Montana. He has worked for the National Park Service and the Forest Service as a wildlife biologist to conserve harlequin ducks in Montana, Alberta and British Columbia for more years than he can remember.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Wine and desserts will be served before the lecture. Presentation begins at 6:30. All proceeds benefit the missions of the Conrad Mansion Museum and Glacier Institute. Price is $10.00 per person. Seating is limited. RSVPs are required. Please call the Mansion at 755-2166.
