NATURE NOTES FROM CRATER LAKE
By C. Warren Fairbanks, Chief Park Naturalist
One of the objects of the Crater Lake Natural History Association is "to aid in the distribution of information on all subjects pertaining to the park." It is in keeping with this aim that this 1955 number of Nature Notes from Crater Lake is presented. Reprinting of Nature Notes articles is encouraged; it is requested that acknowledgment be given both to the author and to this publication.
Each summer a dedicated National Park Service interpretive staff presents an excellent program of talks, nature trips, exhibits, and other informational services. The material found in the following articles is the result of staff members' activities seldom brought to the attention of the visitor -- the gathering of new information. Such efforts both document and give new information for talks.
The Crater Lake Natural History Association was founded in 1942 to promote and assist the interpretive program offered park visitors, to further the investigation of subjects of popular interest and importance. and to aid in the distribution of information on all subjects pertaining to the park. Toward this end it sponsors Nature Notes from Crater Lake and operates a publications sales counter, the proceeds from which are used entirely to support this work. A list of items for sale may be obtained by writing to the Executive Secretary, Crater Lake Natural History Association, Box 97, Crater Lake, Oregon.
(Harry C. Parker was Chief Park Naturalist in 1955.)
