Public Lands Education Forum

Public Lands Education Forum - May 30th at 6 PM

The Sierra Club is thrilled to host Colorado's very first Public Lands Education Forum (PLEF) on "The Question of Colorado's Public Lands Legacy." Our Wild America Campaign is building momentum, and conversations around public lands issues here in Colorado are drawing more attention by the day. We believe that now is the best time to instill the significance of America's public lands through educational dialogue that builds a stronger, more knowledgeable community and provides comprehensive viewpoints from a wide range of influential stakeholders here in Colorado.

The PLEF will provide the opportunity for local leaders and stakeholders to share valuable and diverse perspectives with the public and provide clear insight into their relationship with Colorado's magnificent landscape. Panelists will provide answers to select questions that will enhance our collective understanding of the many views and uses pertaining to public lands (e.g., "What do public lands mean to you?").

Following panelist discussion, a reception will be held to keep the conversation alive and give local businesses a venue to promote their products and services related to Colorado's public lands with a diverse and engaged constituency.

Getting There
Public transit is highly encouraged, it's better for the environment and saves you the hassle of parking. If driving, please note that all PLEF attendees will be permitted to park in the University's "E" Lot for $5 per vehicle (click here for map). If using public transit you can take the Light Rail's E, F, or H lines to get to the University stop; you can also take the bus along route 24. Both stops are within walking distance of Reiman Theater in Margery Reed Hall.
