"Explore Arizona" grand opening
Last week's grand opening of the "Explore Arizona" outdoor information center and map/bookstore in Phoenix drew a big crowd. BLM State Director Elaine Zielinski and I did the traditional ribbon cutting, and invited the 100+ attendees inside to officially launch the one-stop shop for state and federal publications and materials.
That's me on the right, describing the innovative partnering between AZGS and BLM and the business model we developed to set up and operate the center without using state taxpayer funds. BLM Information Specialist Phyllis Railley is in the left photo, talking with some of the overflow crowd outside the store.
