A WILDERNESS ICON:  UTAH’S RED ROCK CANYONLANDS

April 4th, 7:00pm

Lake Superior College – 2101 Trinity Rd, Duluth – Room S-2964

Speaker:  Clayton Daughenbaugh of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance

Free and Open to the Public

America’s wild public lands are a proud part of the national heritage.  Sadly, they are under attack.  President Trump has initiated what would be the largest rollback of conservation protections in our country’s history.  He is seeking to repeal and replace the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments and reverse the steady progress towards protecting the largest unprotected wilderness area in the lower 48 states.

“A Wilderness Icon” includes a multi-media slideshow documenting citizen efforts to conserve public lands in southern Utah's spectacular canyon country. This 15-minute journey through red rock splendor, narrated by Robert Redford, invigorates and motivates viewers to participate in the movement to protect these unique lands.  The protection effort’s history and current events will be covered by Clayton Daughenbaugh, conservation organizer with the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance.

 “These public lands are among the most beautiful and most intact portions of Creation remaining. Wild places that include the largest concentration of Native American archaeological in U.S.  We have a great responsibility to act to protect these special places," Daughenbaugh said.
