ST. GEORGE – Learn about the restoration of the California condor species at the next Dixie State College weekly “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” forum on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 12 noon, in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSC campus. Admission is free.

Chris Parish, Condor Project Coordinator for The Peregrine Fund, will discuss the California condor in his presentation entitled “Current Status of the Reintroduced Condor in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona,” which discusses the work being done by conservationists to restore healthy California condor populations in the wild.

Parish has served as the project coordinator since 2000, after working on ferret and condor reintroduction programs for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. He is a graduate of Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology with an emphasis in Fish and Wildlife Management.
