May 30, 2023
Back of Beyond Books is excited to be part of Great Minds Are Not All The Same, the Moab Museum’s event with Dr. Temple Grandin at 6pm, Tuesday, May 30, 2023 at Historic Star Hall.
The third week of May annually brings recognition to critical and endangered heritage breeds in order “to protect endangered livestock and poultry breeds from extinction.” In celebration of the Livestock Conservancy’s International Heritage Breeds Week, Moab Museum has spent time this month highlighting Heritage Breeds important to early agriculture in Southeastern Utah. Dr. Grandin’s visit will cap off this recognition of Heritage Breeds as she highlights the importance of Heritage Breeds and small farm operators. Tickets for this event are $45/non-members and $25/members.
