“Three Deserts”

7 p.m. Tuesday, January 19, 2016


Dr. Robert Engel, Professor Emeritus of Biology, Marlboro College,

will acquaint us with the three United States deserts (Chihuahuan,

Sonoran, and Mohave) each almost as different from one another as tthey

are from the forests of Vermont. They are also teaming with life. This slide

presentation will try to demonstrate the austere beauty of these

unappreciated natural systems.
