Albuquerque June Meeting: “San Juan Basin Badlands National Monument and National Scenic Byway – The Time is Now.”

Environmental activist Mike Richie presents a profusely illustrated, scientific overview of the 15 discrete, far flung San Juan Basin Badlands, including basin geology, paleontology, ecology, conservation and recreational topics. Additional up-to-date information will focus on the economics and politics of the ongoing “San Juan Basin Sustainable Tourism Development Plan” which includes the badlands, Chaco Canyon and the US Highway 550 corridor. Responsible tourism enables us to preserve our state’s rich and diverse natural heritage and cultures while enhancing an important contribution to our sustainable economic base.

Regular monthly chapter meetings are held on first Wednesdays at 7 PM and are held at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuquerque, 1801 Mountain Road NW. Free and open to the public.
