Please join us in welcoming Nick Glidden, District Ranger for the Dixie National Forest as a contributor to the Brown Bag Lecture Series. The Pine Valley Ranger District is known for its distinctive vegetation, ranging from Pinyon/Juniper to Engelmann Spruce forests. It is also known for its most prominent feature, the Pine Valley laccolith. The laccolith, which is an intrusive rock outcrop, is the largest of its kind in the United States. The laccolith makes up the Pine Valley Mountains which are a federally designated wilderness area. The unique geologic features of the district provide for many great recreation opportunities.
