CRIA sponsors free lecture series

Chimney Rock Interpretive Association (CRIA) is proud to sponsor a Lecture Series starting in January and running through April. The lectures are free of charge and open to the public. The lectures will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. following CRIA’s monthly potluck on the second Thursday of every month at the Pagosa Springs Community Center.

The first speaker, Kevin Khung, is slated for Thursday, Jan. 9. Kevin is the District Ranger for the San Juan National Forest, Pagosa Ranger District. He will be giving a presentation about the West Fork Fire Complex that occurred this past summer.

The public is invited to join CRIA for their monthly potluck preceding the lecture at 6 p.m. Please bring your favorite dish to share and join our volunteers to learn more about this nonprofit organization which operates the interpretive program at Chimney Rock National Monument.

CRIA operates in partnership with the USDA Forest Service and the San Juan National Forest. For more information, view the CRIA website at, or call 731-7133.
