If you know Southern Idaho’s Silent City, you probably think of wagon trains to California, towering granite features, and world-class rock climbing. Park Superintendent Wallace Keck has spent 15 years pointing the camera at its secrets and will share stories behind the scenery. If you have yet to visit the National Reserve and its sister park Castle Rocks State Park, this presentation is essential for travel planning.

Wallace Keck is the Park Superintendent of City of Rocks National Reserve and Castle Rocks State Park. He has a B.S. degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Management with an emphasis in interpretation from Arkansas Tech University. He has served the public for 33 years, stewarding resources in 6 parks, 5 agencies and 3 states. Wallace, his wife Susan and dog Clancy live in the shadow of Cache Peak north of Almo. When he’s not in the office, you’ll find him with a camera in one hand and a pair of binoculars in the other, chasing birds across the country.

Wallace’s talk will begin at 6. A reception for the City of Rocks exhibit in the lecture hall will take place from 5 to 6.
