On September 15, 2012, the Entrada Institute welcomed John Kuehnert, an Interpretive Park Ranger at Capitol Reef National Park.
Kuehnert shared the topic “Solid as a Rock: Geology of Capitol Reef”. This presentation explored the geology and geologic processes that lead to the creation of Capitol Reef National Park. The park is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
The ‘standing room only crowd’ enjoyed Kuehnert’s explain and demonstrations of the geological processes of Capitol Reef National Park.
