Ted Gostomski, the co-author of Island Life: An Isle Royale Nature Guide and a biologist/science writer at the Great Lakes Inventory and Monitoring Program of the National Park Service, will speak on Friday at Voyaguers National Park in International Falls.
The title of Gostomski’s talk is: “Is There a Doctor in the Park? Monitoring Vital Signs at Voyageurs National Park.”
Just as a doctor monitors a patient’s vital signs to make sure the patient is healthy, the announcement for the talk explains, biologists with the NPS are monitoring natural processes, plants, and animals in national parks to determine their health.
Gostomski’s talk will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the historic Woodenfrog State Forest Campground Refectory near Kabetogama Lake. The talk is one of Voyageurs’ regular free Friday night speakers’ programs which take place throughout the summer. The programs are sponsored by the Friends of Voyageurs National Park.
