BLM brown bag lunch series continues

ST. GEORGE – The Bureau of Land Management Brown Bag Series returns to the Arizona Strip Field Office, 345 East Riverside Drive, this Friday after a short break for the holiday season.

The BLM Brown Bag Series is a lecture-type forum where the public can attend for free and is welcome to bring a sack lunch because the meeting is held from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

The series is held every Friday from October to March each year. The presenters are different each meeting and share a variety of educational information to the attendants.

“[The meeting] covers not just BLM land but a lot of our partners as well,” said Rachel Tueller, the public service officer for the Arizona strip district. “There will be a lot of folks there from all public land management and natural resources.”

The topics also vary in content Tueller said. This Friday, Jan. 6, a BLM archeologist, law enforcement professional and Kiabab tribe member will speak about the local land and what it means from their varying points of view. Time is reserved at the end of the presentation for a question and answer forum for attendants to interact with the presenters.

Currently the meeting entertains about 30-40 people, but in the spring there are anywhere from 60-80 attendants Tueller said.

“Last year we had to hold two sessions because [the meeting] was so well attended,” Tueller said.

Contact the BLM office at 688-3246 for further information.
