A series of springtime lectures starts Friday with a presentation on faults and earthquakes in southwestern Utah, scheduled for noon at the Interagency Information Center, 345 E. Riverside Drive in St. George.
Bill Lund, senior scientist with the Utah Geological Survey, is scheduled to give a presentation on the structure of active earth in southwestern Utah and give insight as to whether the region could experience an earthquake similar to those that recently affected Haiti, Turkey, Chile and Japan.
The April Brown Bag Program series, sponsored by the Dixie/Arizona Strip Interpretive Association, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service, will feature lectures each Friday of the month, covering topics such as the geology of Kanab Point, the history of Pioche, and a musical Earth Day celebration.
Lectures are free to attend, but space is limited and those interested are encouraged to obtain tickets in advance from the Interagency Information Center.
