Speaker: Ann McLuckie, Wildlife Biologist

When you step over one of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve’s distinctive “step-over” gates, you are entering a special place, a 62,000-acre scenic wildlife reserve set aside to protect the Mohave Desert Tortoise and other rare plants and animals.

At the merging of three great ecosystems, the Reserve is biologically rich with a unique array of animals and plants. The conditions in the region are such that several endemic species, those which occur nowhere else in the world, occur here.

Important Note Regarding Registration to Attend Brown Bag Lectures

Due to limited seating and high demand, you must register to attend any lecture.  Sign up begins one week prior to each program at approximately 1:10 p.m. on each Friday at the conclusion of the program. Sixty seats are reserved for general admission, with an additional 20 seats for DASIA members.  An additional 30-slot waiting list will be made available when the program is oversubscribed.  Those on the waiting list will be contacted by telephone when a seat becomes available.
