The Miami Group-Sierra Club will co-host a program entitled “Wild Utah: America’s Red Rock Wilderness” on Mon. Oct 5, 2015 at the Boy Scouts Center, Evendale, OH. The speaker will be Clayton Daughenbaugh, Conservation Organizer with the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance.
America’s Red Rock Wilderness draws pilgrims from around the world. It is the largest network of undesignated wilderness lands remaining in the lower 48 states.
The program includes “Wild Utah”, a multi-media slideshow. 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 and threatened public lands.
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 — legislation is pending in Congress, the White House is reviewing national monument proposals, and administrative decisions by the Department of Interior are ongoing.
“These are spectacular public lands owned by all Americans. As citizens we have a great opportunity to act to protect these special places,” Daughenbaugh said.
Clayton Daughenbaugh also serves as the volunteer Chair of the Sierra Club’s National Wildlands Committee.
