Community invited to biology field trip
Alexey Shipunov, assistant biology professor, is hosting an excursion Aug. 31 on the open prairie located off of County Road 15, near Minot. The field trip will begin at 11 a.m. and end approximately 12:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
Shipunov said the area is an excellent example of unaltered grassland that contains a large amount of native plants, now in bloom. His goal is to show participants the diversity of plants native to this area and their proximity to Minot.
Interested participants are asked to meet in the "J" lot near the Gordon B. Olson Library at 10:45 the day of the event. For more information, contact Shipunov at email@example.com.
