AZGS Phoenix store readying for opening

"Explore Arizona" is the name of the new bookstore/information center run by the Arizona Geologica Survey that will soon open in downtown Phoenix. This will be a one-stop shop for outdoor recreation, natural history, natural resource, and public lands information and products from a wide array of state and federal agencies, along with select commercial products. Explore Arizona is a joint partnership with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The Arizona Rock Products Association (ARPA) is our first corporate sponsor.

It's located on the ground floor of the Phelps-Dodge Tower at Washington & 1st St. We hope to open for business in a couple of weeks with a formal grand opening later this spring.
