Zion Canyon Field Institute is again offering a weekend of professionally guided exploration in Lytle Preserve, where the "basin and range province" of the Mojave Desert meets the Colorado River Plateau in extreme southwestern Utah. Unique geological formations and ecosystems overlap here.
The 462-acre preserve lies along the Beaver Dam Wash drainage at an approximate elevation of 2,800 feet.
Join a ZCFI geologist, botanist, and birder during peak spring migratory bird season, on the weekend of April 4-5, for a multi-discipline study of this natural resource. Participants will camp in the preserve and will need to bring their own camping gear and all food and drink supplies for two dinners, two breakfasts, and one or two lunches. There are showers and restrooms available on site. The fee for the class including all camping and entrance fees is $125.
To register or request more information call ZCFI Director Michael Plyler at (435) 772-3264 or go to www.zionpark.org.
