Interpretive programs available to community

Beginning in May, the Public Lands Interpretive Association will present two programs a month for adults at one of the Kaibab National Forest campgrounds. Both programs will take place Wednesday mornings from 9 to 11 a.m.

On the first Wednesday of the month, participants will learn about plant and animal identification, scientific illustration and botanical art, and current opportunities to get involved with citizen science projects. On the third Wednesday of the month, community members can discuss a book on nature or history, with a walk following the discussion.

The first program will begin on May 7 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Kaibab Lake Campground. Attendees will learn the parts of plants and how to "see" the science in flowers.

The first "Books and Boots" program will be May 21 from 9-11 a.m. at Kaibab Lake Campground. The book "Half Broke Horses" by Jeannette Walls will be discussed. The first hour will be the book discussion, with a one hour walk following at 10 a.m.

The programs will meet in the campground amphitheater. Attendees should bring water, and be prepared for all types of weather.

More information about both programs is available from Deb Noel at (928) 635-4707.
