Be FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY – The reproductive  Life of Insects

The reproductive lives of insects are as    diverse and interesting as the critters are themselves. Carnivorous children turn into vegetarian grown ups. Children are orphaned. Fathers are beheaded, mothers perfumed – everything is possible.

MINING IN THE OLD DAYS

presented by Stephenie Slahor

The rusty barrel drum winch and cogs that operated the mine shaft elevator of the long abandoned Lost Horse Mine site in Joshua Tree National Park.

California, Nevada and Arizona have rich mining histories, but mining in the old days was a unique, dangerous and difficult job.  This lecture looks at what life was like for miners, the work they did, how they lived, and how mining helped open the West for settlers.
