GCA begins new lecture series

A new Grand Canyon Association lecture series begins in February in Flagstaff. Called Conversations on the Edge, it will feature specialists from Grand Canyon National Park's Division of Science and Resource Management, speaking about the Park's work to monitor, manage and preserve the Canyon for present and future generations.

All lectures are at the Cline Library at Northern Arizona University. Upcoming:

Wednesday, Feb. 4: "Excavating Along the River: New Archeological Research in Grand Canyon National Park," by Lisa Leap, river corridor archaeologist for the park.

She will talk about a five-year project that she is co-directing with the Museum of Northern Arizona to excavate nine sites along the Colorado River. These are the first major river excavations in 40 years.

Wednesday, March 4: "Grand Canyon's Green Heart: Plants of the Canyon," by Lori Makarick, Vegetation Program Manager at Grand Canyon.

She will lead a virtual tour of the park's vegetation communities from the North Rim to the Inner Canyon, discussing efforts to preserve endangered plant species, manage invasive plants and restore native habitat.
