BOC Treasurer: Paul Landsberg

The BOC is proud to be hosting Jackie Feinberg, the National Grassroots Organizer for the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) on Wednesday, September 23rd at 7:30pm at the Schwartz Outdoor Leadership Center. Jackie will be giving a multimedia slideshow on SUWA's efforts to protect and expand wilderness areas in beautiful Southern Utah and how you can help.

We will also be hosting an informal dinner with Jackie at 5:30 in the Mitchell North Room in Thorne Hall for those interested in talking more specifically about opportunities to help SUWA and about preservation efforts in Southeastern Utah.

More about SUWA:

"The mission of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) is the preservation of the outstanding wilderness at the heart of the Colorado Plateau, and the management of these lands in their natural state for the benefit of all Americans.

SUWA promotes local and national recognition of the region's unique character through research and public education; supports both administrative and legislative initiatives to permanently protect the Colorado Plateau wild places within the National Park and National Wilderness Preservation Systems, or by other protective designations where appropriate; builds support for such initiatives on both the local and national level; and provides leadership within the conservation movement through uncompromising advocacy for wilderness preservation."
