Whose Land? Community Conversation

  • 05.22.18
    6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Public lands are part of our national heritage, belonging to us and to future generations. Join Curator of Natural History Louise Shirley and Curator of Western History Laura Ferguson for a discussion of public lands and their management. Who benefits from the existence of public lands? Are National Parks America’s “greatest idea,” as Wallace Stegner claimed? What value do public lands hold and what do we hope for their future?

Museum café will be open for food and drinks
Members $3, non-members $7
