Lecture Series Twenty Eighteen: Top 10 Species that Define a Place:A City of Rocks Natural History 2/13/2018
Time: 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
 
 

Park Superintendent and Naturalist Wallace Keck explores the natural history of Idaho's Silent City of Rocks. Although there are over 500 species of plants and over 200 species of vertebrates within the 14,407-acre Reserve, Keck confines the presentation to 10 living things that define a sense of place. He will take you on a journey from the prehistoric pinyon pine invasion to the nearly decade-long adventure to find the secret nesting site of Pinyon Jays. Keck challenges the audience to rethink their ideas about Idaho's natural communities in a place where moose live with rattlesnakes and ringtails.

Wallace Keck has served as park superintendent of City of Rocks National Reserve and park manager of Castle Rocks State Park since 2002. He has worked for three state park agencies, two federal agencies, and at thirteen sites over the course of his 33-year career in recreation and resource management. Keck is an avid birder, field botanist, writer, and photographer. Wallace and his wife Susan live in the village of Almo.
