Jul 22 Moab Information Lecture Series- Jeff Moore "Vibration and the lifecycle of natural arches: decoding the language of stone". Rock arches are dynamic, sensitive and fragile landforms, and are constantly broadcasting their state health; we need only listen with the right set of tools to experience and begin to interpret this language. The iconic arches of Utah’s red rock desert are constantly in motion, trembling in resonance with the forces of the Earth. The natural frequencies of vibration are in turn controlled by geometry and material properties and combine to reveal a distinct vibrational fingerprint unique to every landform. Sped up and amplified, we can now experience these vibrations as sound, hearing the hidden voice of Utah’s red rock icons and forming the basis for a new, non-invasive method of structural health monitoring. Our team measures the ambient vibration of prominent rock arches and towers in Utah. Our results help inform questions of conservation and public safety for some of the world's most revered geological landmarks, and provide a new way for visitors to engage with these dynamic rock formations aiming to inspire a spirit of respect and care. 5pm, outside on the patio at Moab Information Center. Presented by Canyonlands Natural History Association (CNHA) and Moab Museum

Jul 30 Free Concert Series- In 20 years since his full-length solo debut, One Left Shoe, Steve Poltz blessed the world’s ears with thirteen solo records, spanning the acclaimed "2010 Dreamhouse" and most recently, "Shine On" in 2019. NPR summed it up best, “Critics and fans alike now regard Poltz as a talented and prolific songwriter.” Evoking themes of “hope, love, contemplation, celebration of Wednesday, pharmacists, and the fact that windows are not inanimate objects and they sometimes have conversations with each other,” Shine On represents Steve at his most inspired and insightful. The opener and title track pairs a delicate vocal with lithely plucked acoustic strings as he urges everyone to, “Shine on, shine on.”Swanny City Park 6-9pm
