Join Us for Earth Day with a Conservation Hero

We hope you can join us and Utah Open Lands for our Earth Day breakfast to hear conservation pioneer, Brock Evans. Brock is one of the foremost leaders in the environmental movement with over 50 years experience in protecting some of America’s most iconic landscapes. Brock has dedicated his life to fighting for the places we all love including serving as the Sierra Club’s head lobbyist in Washington D.C. in the 1970’s, a 15 year tenure as Audubon Society’s Vice-President for National Issues, and the Executive Director and now President of the Endangered Species Coalition.

Earth-Day-Awards-Breakfast-w-Brock-EvansBrock’s accomplishments include protecting 100 million acres of wilderness in Alaska and successfully lobbying for the High Uintas Wilderness so many Utahns hold dear. He also made history by filing the first environmental lawsuit in the Northwest against proposed dams in Hells Canyon of the Snake River. He successfully drafted and lobbied for federal legislation that prevented any dam from being constructed in the canyon. He has scores of other amazing stories far too numerous to describe here.

We hope you can join us for a special Earth Day breakfast with Brock and a short awards ceremony honoring some modern-day conservation heroes on Friday, April 22nd, 8-10am at Wasatch Brew Pub in Sugarhouse. $10 recommended donation. RSVP required to nick@utahrivers.org.
