Our presenter this month will be Travis Hammill. “Wild Utah: America’s Redrock Wilderness” is a multi-media slideshow documenting citizen efforts to designate public lands in southern Utah’s spectacular canyon country as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. This 20-minute journey through Redrock splendor invigorates and motivates viewers to participate in the movement to protect these unique lands.
The program was made possible through the generous donation of photos, music, and words from concerned Utahns who wish to pass this heritage onto future generations, including narration by Robert Redford.
The multimedia slideshow will be shown in conjunction with a presentation on the status of the Utah wilderness movement – including the current effort to protect the Greater Canyonlands region – by Travis Hammill, Eastern Grassroots Organizer for the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. This inspirational and informational event is a must see for people wishing to become personally involved to make the difference in this tremendous American public lands conservation effort.
