Sept. 17: A WILDERNESS ICON: UTAH’S RED ROCK CANYONLANDS
America’s red rock canyonlands wilderness, located in southern Utah, draws pilgrims from across the country and around the world. It is the largest network of undesignated wilderness lands remaining in the lower 48 states – at its heart lies the Greater Canyonlands region surrounding Canyonlands National Park.
Clayton Daughenbaugh, conservation organizer with the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, will tell us about efforts to preserve this unique area at 6:30 pm on September 17th, at the SCJohnson/Gateway Technical IMET Center, 2320 Renaissance Blvd., Sturtevant. The program includes “Wild Utah”, a multi-media presentation documenting citizen efforts to designate public lands in southern Utah's spectacular canyon country as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. This 15-minute journey through red rock splendor, narrated by Robert Redford, encourages viewers to help protect these unique lands. t was made possible through the generous donation of photos, music and words from concerned Utahans who wish to pass this heritage on to future generations.
The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and its partners in the Utah Wilderness Coalition seek to gain local support for the “Citizens’ Proposal” to protect wilderness areas in Utah’s red rock canyonlands. Comprehensive legislation is pending in Congress and administrative decisions by the White House and the Department of Interior are ongoing.
Daughenbaugh also serves as the volunteer Chair of the Sierra Club’s National Wildlands Committee and as Vice President for its Grassroots Network.
NOTE: This program was originally scheduled for October 2014.
