Seminars are 7-8 PM every Tuesday from May 2 to June 6 at the Page Center at SNARL

Please join us this spring for a series of presentations focused on some of the latest research and findings from the Eastern Sierra and Beyond. We are very excited to be in person again at the Page Center. Seminars are on Tuesday evenings from 7-8 PM and doors open at 6:30. All seminars will be held in the Page Center at SNARL – 1016 Mount Morrison Road. Small tasters of food and drink will be provided by local businesses. Please arrive early to park, secure a seat, snack and mingle. Seminars are geared to adult audiences, however young people are encouraged to attend and well-behaved children are welcome.
