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.
