BLM continues Brown Bag Lecture series

ST. GEORGE — Every Friday, the Bureau of Land Management and its partners host the popular free Brown Bag Lecture series, which provides unique opportunities for members of the public to learn more about the area’s natural resources and public lands.

Speakers include geologists, range specialists, biologists, archaeologists, rangers and other specialists who delve more deeply into subjects tied to the Arizona Strip and surrounding public lands.

For those who want to learn more before venturing out, or are curious about these remote and rugged landscapes, the lectures are an excellent way to bring the resources and related issues to the community’s doorstep.

The lectures, which begin at noon and last one hour, are held at the Interagency Information Center, located at 345 E. Riverside Drive in St. George.

Admission is free, but space is limited for this popular lecture series. To obtain tickets, visit the Interagency Information Center or call 435-­688-­3200 for more information on obtaining tickets.

The lecture series is sponsored by the Dixie/Arizona Strip Interpretive Association, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service.
