Frank Ackerman, Retired National Park Ranger

Though the national parks and monuments of southern Utah are geologically and ecologically related, visiting them provides differing experiences. As the parks emerged, one by one between 1909 and 1996, the accommodations and facilities that were deemed appropriate within them changed. Ackerman will speak about technological changes and scientific observations that influenced this evolution. Ackerman will also be the study leader on the Club’s upcoming Utah trip in September.
