Thirty-four writers donate work to speak for Utah’s public lands

A collection of essays and poems called Red Rock Testimony: Three Generations of Writers Speak on Behalf of Utah’s Public Lands recently arrived on the desks of Washington, D.C. officials as they prepare to make crucial decisions about the future of southern Utah’s public lands. The 88-page book conveys the spiritual, cultural and scientific values of Utah’s canyon country and seek to influence the Obama administration and Congress to protect America’s public lands. Stephen Trimble, associate instructor at the University of Utah’s Honors College and the book’s editor, recently delivered copies of the book to Obama administration officials and to the public lands managers at the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service and United States Forest Service. Trimble is available to discuss the book and Utah’s public lands.
