POLSON – University of Montana professor Ric Hauer will discuss threats to the water quality of Flathead Lake and the Flathead River at the next program sponsored by the Mission Mountain Audubon Society.

“Pristine waters and biodiversity threatened in the North Fork Flathead River” will be the subject of Hauer’s talk Tuesday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. in the Polson City Library meeting room. The public is welcome to attend.

Hauer has studied the North Fork since 1977, when a proposed coal mine in Canada was first considered a threat. Canadian energy companies again say they intend to develop coal mines near the river’s headwaters.

Hauer will talk about potential threats to water quality, aquatic life, fisheries and wildlife posed by the mines.
