 Roger Blew, "The Idaho National Laboratory and It's Sagebrush Steppe."

 Roger Blew, ecologist for a Department of Energy contractor at the Idaho National Laboratory west of Idaho Falls, will tell the story of the Sagebrush Steppe Ecosystem, which  has experienced a 98% decline since European settlement in the American West and was listed as critically endangered by the National Biological Service in 1995. The 900 square mile INL contains much of the remaining relict examples of this disappearing ecosystem and many opportunities for basic research.
