'A Ranger at the Grand Canyon' talk
I worked as a National Park Ranger in the Grand Canyon, responsible for explaining its natural wonder to visitors and leading nature hikes. I explored and photographed much of the Canyon, and have made several return visits. This talk will give insights only obtainable from someone who knows this fascinating region intimately.
From the earliest peoples to live there, the first Europeans to discover it and its subsequent history, I will surprise and entertain. Beautiful flowers, treefrogs, the area's spectacular geology, history, and wildlife will all be explored. I will also detail the threats to this World Heritage Site and what remedies are being undertaken.
talk has drawn large attendances every time I have given it. My intimate
encounter with a rattlesnake is not the least of the highlights.......
