Stunning Photographs, Free Event! This Tuesday!

Join the Oregon Sierra Club’s High Desert Committee
this Tuesday, November 8th
for a free event about

PROTECTING UTAH’S CANYONLANDS
AND RED ROCK COUNTRY!

For years, Sierra Club volunteers across the country have partnered with the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) to protect the remaining wild desert lands of southern Utah.  Next week, the Oregon Chapter’s High Desert Committee is hosting a free special event with SUWA —  an evening of photos and information about efforts to protect Utah’s Canyonlands and Red Rock country.

WHAT: An Evening of Photographs and information about efforts to protect wild areas in Southern Utah
WHY: * Stunning images of unprotected areas in Utah* Hear about Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance’s  Greater Canyonlands Campaign and the latest developments affecting America’s Red Rock Wilderness

* You will NOT be asked for money!

WHEN: THIS Tuesday, November 8th
7:30 to 9 p.m.
WHERE: Sierra Club Office in Portland
1821 SE Ankeny Street, Portland OR 97214

Brooke Williams is on staff with SUWA and has a long history with efforts to protect wilderness in Utah. He will be presenting a slide show of stunning images of the currently unprotected areas in Utah most of us are largely unfamiliar with. This is not a National Park photo tour but will instead focus on those areas with wilderness values that are more off the beaten path. He will also focus on some of the threats to these areas and SUWA’s current campaign to protect them.

This event is not a fundraiser (it’s FREE) but rather is intended to help build support for desert wilderness protection and connect people with like-minded interests.

Many of the issues and struggles to protect wildlands in Utah are mirrored by our own challenges to protect the vast Owyhee Canyonlands of SE Oregon. As Sierra Club members we should have an interest in both efforts. Some snacks and libations will be available.

Please RSVP if possible to borden.beck@oregon.sierraclub.org
