2018 Schedule:

Living with Snakes: How to Coexist with our Friends in the Desert: 4/10/18

The gila monster's habitat is threatened due primarily to human encroachment.

Drawing upon his decades of experience with venomous snakes, herpetologist Frank Bryce will talk about the reptiles we share the desert with, how to identify the most common species of rattlesnakes, and what to do if you find one on your porch. He’ll bring in live specimens (in cages!) to help with identification, including a Gila monster that may be the oldest one in captivity. You don't want to miss this informative and practical presentation!

Free and open to the public.

With Distance in His Eyes: The Environmental Life and Legacy of Stewart Udall: 9/11/18

A major figure in American conservation, Stewart Udall (1920-2010) served in the cabinets of JFK and LBJ and was the most successful U.S. Secretary of the Interior in history. A progressive Mormon from rural Arizona, Udall helped create dozens of new national parks and wildlife refuges in the 1960s and was a major player in the passing of the Wilderness Act, Land and Water Conservation Fund, Wild and Scenic River System, and more. Living in Santa Fe later in life, Udall was active in the local conservation scene and for several years defended a series of Navajo uranium miners in court. Udall’s inspiring life and legacy will be discussed during this presentation.

Scott Einberger is an environmental historian and public lands enthusiast. He lives in Washington, DC.

The book will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
