John Mionczynski will speak on “Some Interesting Plants of the Ancient People of the Yellowstone” June 6 as part of the Draper Natural History Museum Lunchtime Expedition series.

A wildlife consultant and ethnobotanist from Dubois, Mionczynski is scheduled to appear at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Coe Auditorium at 12:15 p.m.

While researching bears, bighorn sheep and other animals in the Yellowstone Ecosystem and the Black Hills, Mionczynski developed a familiarity with plants connected to Native American cultures.

Mionczynski’s talk is informed by his role as both ethnobotanist and cameraman for the Native Memory Project based in Dubois.
