Scout Island Nature House will host a presentation by Bruce Archibald tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m.
Archibald specializes in life during Eocene times, 55 to 35 million years ago, a time much warmer than today when even tropical adapted species occurred in the arctic. He has made several important discoveries and published several papers including The Eocene Apex of Panorpoid Family Diversity, a paper by SFU’s Bruce Archibald and Rolf Mathewes, plus David Greenwood from Brandon University in the Journal of Paleontology
If you go to his website (http://brucearchibald.com/) you can learn more about him. He has been an advocate for protecting important Eocene fossil beds such as those near Cache Creek and does speaking tours to public groups like WLFN.
