Moab Information Center 2021 Lecture Series

September 2 – Elsie Fisher and Tina Carpenter: Why do we love Arches National Park?!

Is it just the arches or is there something more? Join Rangers Elsie and Tina to chat about what
makes Arches so special and why it’s worth protecting for future generations.

September 9 – Paul Stolen: Photography Impacts and Influences in our Public Lands

Join us for an exploration of photography and its impacts at Arches National Park and other public
lands over time. We’ll discuss advances in technology and how it affects the way we take and
view images. We’ll also share best practices for shooting photography outdoors. This program
is great for anyone – no photography experience is required!

September 16 – Kristin Vinduska: This Must Be The Place

This program focuses on stories of survival in the desert and our living connections to this place. Explore how humans and living creatures have become attached to the Moab area and hear unique stories of
perseverance in this often-unforgiving landscape. Learn about hunting and gathering, agriculture, ranching, and the tourism boom to discover how a diverse array of people have made a life off the land for ages and what has made them stay. Discover the evolution of this landscape and its uses and determine your own attachment to this area!

September 23 – Evelyn Tewksbury: Moon Dance 

Has science gone too far… or not far enough? Spend an evening exploring our evolving relationship with the Moon and learn about the power of dark skies. 

September 30 – Robert Anderson: Soundscapes: How Noise Pollution Influences Wildlife
Patterns and Visitor Experience Within Canyonlands NP

Beep Beep Beep! Tweet tweet! Sounds are all around us and play an important role in our experience with the landscape. The National Park Service is beginning to understand the relationship between sound and the
inherent resources within the park. By preserving the natural sound we all can enjoy our national wonders a little more.
