KSB Virtual Speaker Series on Wednesday, July 14
Sedona AZ (July 6, 2021) – Keep Sedona Beautiful is pleased to present Geologist Wayne Ranney, on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. for its monthly Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series webinar.
“Everyone has heard of the Grand Canyon but only people from Arizona are familiar with our state’s second grandest landform, the Mogollon Rim,” said Ranney. “Nearly as long as the Grand Canyon and similar in some respects, the Rim has an interesting origin story that is not readily apparent to the casual eye. We will talk about how this amazing feature came into existence.,” he said.
Based in Flagstaff, Wayne is a geologist, river guide and author. He completed his Master’s degree in Geology at Northern Arizona University by compiling a geologic map of the House Mountain volcano located southwest of Sedona. Out of this project, he published his first book, “Sedona Through Time”, now in its third edition and considered the foremost book on the subject. A few of his other books include “Carving the Grand Canyon” and “Ancient Landscapes of the Colorado Plateau”.
Wayne works as an international guide and geologic interpreter with trips to all seven continents and over 90 countries including those in Africa, the Amazon, Antarctica, Patagonia, and the North and South Poles.

KSB currently plans to resume in-person Speaker Series events on October 13 featuring Janie Agyagos, Wildlife Biologist.
