Rear Admiral Benjamin Nicholson says that some of the elements and events that will be highlighted are endangered species and areas, culture, and history of Guam.

Rear Admiral Nicholson – who spoke before the Mayor’s Council of Guam meeting on Wednesday to discuss what will take place at the cultural resource fair.

“What that’s going to be is in a kind of fair setup where we have various different stations. It’s going to highlight a lot of the things that have been going on both culturally and environmentally that we’ve been doing,” says Nicholson.

The Joint Region Commander added that there will be many experts for interested individuals to ask questions.

“We’re going to have our archaeologists there. We’re going to have a lot of our environmental experts there and you can ask them questions directly.”

Nicholson added that one of the several topics that will be discussed on is on methods of eradicating harmful invasive spices – such as the brown tree snake which harms the islands birds.

The cultural resource fair is open to the public and will take place on Thursday January 19th at 5 pm at the new cultural repository.
