Grenbenkemper is scheduled to talk about the canine search for the Donner Family Camps at Alder Creek.

Recent explorations by canines from the Institute for Canine Forensics have located human remains scent in the Alder Creek area. John will discuss the results and the implications on the Donner Party’s winter camps at Alder Creek.

Doors open at 5 p.m. with the programming beginning at 5:30 p.m. There is a $5 suggested donation to attend and the State Park parking fee is waived for the evening. Complementary light snacks and wine (for purchase) will be available.
