Thatcher, AZ— Interns from the Eastern Arizona College-Safford Bureau of Land Management (BLM) STEM Partnership, will speak at the BLM’s next Brown Bag Lecture event on Thursday, January 19, from 6-8 p.m., in the BLM Safford Office, located at 711 14th Avenue. Admission is free.

The event will feature a Bigfoot lookalike contest, door prizes, popcorn, Bigfoot cookies, and more! “The Legend of Bigfoot,” a documentary film of one researcher’s quest to track down the elusive mammal, will be shown and discussed. Participants will also be able to talk to a logger who worked in Bigfoot country for decades.

The STEM Partnership is a grant supported program which requires intern participation in public speaking. Bigfoot movie night will help fulfill this requirement.

“Come and meet the interns for Spring 2017, support their efforts, and have a roaring good time!” said Dave Henson, EAC Science Division Chair and partnership coordinator.

For more information about this free educational event, contact Henson at (928) 428-8366, or Dr. Jony Cockman, cultural resources specialist/archaeologist, at the BLM, at (928) 348-4464.
