Narrative

A meltwater stream flowing east along the northern margin of the lower portion of Taylor Glacier into the western end of Lake Bonney, 10.5 miles east of Ferrar Glacier. Named by ACAN, the name is likely in reference to the seminal US/NZ McMurdo Dry Valleys Workshop held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in March 1995, the report from which led to a management plan for the Dry Valleys Antarctic Specially Managed Area being adopted in 2004, the first such area to be agreed by the Antarctic Treaty Parties. The name is useful for purposes of scientific investigation and use in scientific literature. The name has been reported to be in local use.
