Public Lands Summit of the West

Thank you for supporting the recent Public Lands Summit of the West. We enjoyed all of the presentations and the attendees who came. We especially want to thank our sponsors! Without them, there would not have been a summit. For your convenience, we added videos and presentations.

Thank you for your interest in the Public Lands Summit of the West. Public lands issues are in the public eye but there is a great deal of misunderstanding about the law, history, and policies that have raised public lands issues to such prominence. In an effort to provide clear and accurate information about these issues, a group of county leaders and public lands users decided to hold this Summit. By putting together an agenda of credible experts, we intend to provide public lands users and local governments with both a clearer understanding of the issues and useable tools. All participants will be provided with a packet containing the information that is presented during the summit. If participants go home from this summit ready to work with their friends and neighbors to improve public lands discourse, we will consider this event a success.

GOALS

  • Provide correct information about public lands law and management to those who are living with it every day
  • Empower local governments and resource users by giving them tools to use in making positive changes in public lands policy
