Mountain Lake Science Saturdays is a lively new series of talks by scientists studying topics relating to Mountain Lake and its ecological restoration. On the first Saturday of every month, gather at the lake to hear researchers from a variety of disciplines talk on topics ranging from Archaeology to Zooplankton. Here’s your chance to ask the experts your questions about the science being done to save this precious San Francisco natural wonder!
On July 6, come hear Trust Archaeologist Kari Jones talk about the archaeology and history underneath Mountain Lake. Kari Jones is an archaeologist with the Presidio Trust and has worked on the planning of the Mountain Lake Enhancement and Remediation Projects since 2009.
Join her to learn about the ongoing research into the cultural and natural history of Mountain Lake. She will discuss results of limnological coring of lake sediments that took place prior to dredging and what this research can tell us about the formation of the lake and the prehistoric environment. She will also discuss what is known about the Native Ohlone occupation of the Presidio and the Spanish Colonial settlement that followed.
