    Lecture by Steven R. Simms, May 25, 2017, at 6 pm
    This presentation summarizes the geological dating and targets the human behavioral context in which the Great Gallery was produced.

    Every kid knows that dinosaurs are the biggest, fiercest, and most fascinating creatures to ever have walked the Earth, but they are only part of the story. The ancient world was a diverse and vibrant place, and dinosaurs lived alongside a cast that included the earliest mammals. Come and learn what our ancestors were like and what their tiny fossils reveal about their lives: while most survived by scurrying between the feet of dinosaurs, others swam, glided, and even had dinosaurs for lunch!

    Lecture by Robert Gay, July 13, 2017, at 6 pm
    Join Robert Gay, a paleontologist who works with high school students, as he presents recent paleontological discoveries. By taking high school students out to do real-world field science at Comb Ridge in Southeastern Utah, he is not only advancing knowledge but helping grow the next generation of land stewards. Rob will be talking about both the discoveries they have made over the last four years and the student experiences with those discoveries. This work is partly funded by a Canyonlands Natural History Association Discovery Pool Grant.

    Due to the vast amounts of public lands across the Southern part of the state, Utah has some of the darkest skies in the lower 48. Many of the National and State lands found within this area have received the designation as International Dark Sky Parks (Hovenweep NM, Natural Bridges NM, Canyonlands NP, Dead Horse Point SP, Goblin Valley SP, and Capital Reef NP).

    Marjorie A. Chan Lecture by Marjorie Chan, May 18, 2017, at 6 pm
    The Jurassic Navajo Sandstone represents one of the largest ancient wind-blown desert dune systems (erg) known to exist on Earth, with a well-exposed, thin erg margin near Moab, Utah. It was a far cry from a dry, lifeless Jurassic desert. Remarkably, many features of the Navajo Sandstone are important analogs to interpreting the geology of the red planet Mars.
