Greater Zion Community Lecture Series debuts
The boards of three local nonprofit organizations are pleased to announce the debut of a new monthly evening community lecture series focused on public lands and earth sciences. This lecture series will begin on Wednesday, October 16 at 7:00 p.m. at Dixie State University’s Snow Science Building, room 128.
In honor of National Fossil Day 2019, Dr. Josh Bonde, the Curator of Paleontology and Director of Conservation and Research at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, will make a presentation titled “Build it and they will Come! The unexpected need of a fossil lab in southern Nevada and adventures which have followed”
Dr. Bonde is a born and raised Nevadan, originally from Fallon, NV. He earned his BS in Biology at the University of Nevada-Reno; his MS in Earth Sciences from Montana State University-Bozeman; and his PhD in Geoscience from UNLV. His research focuses on the interaction between plate tectonics and life in the intermountain west through the past 550 million years.
The Greater Zion Community Lecture Series is slated to provide many other topics focused on public lands and earth sciences in the coming months on the third Wednesday of the month on the DSU campus. All events are free and open to the public.
