As the second in a series of programs being offered at the Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center by Bucks County Audubon Society, the focus for Sunday, April 13 will be on the vast wilderness of southern Utah.  Rachel Briggs, Eastern Grassroots Organizer from the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance will highlight the beauty of wilderness areas through a multi-media slideshow documenting citizen efforts to designate public lands in southern Utah’s spectacular canyon country as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System.

The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance has been working with organizations across the country, including many Audubon chapters, to protect these lands for the past 30 years.  This journey through redrock splendor invigorates and motivates viewers to participate in the movement to protect this amazing land.  ‘Wild Utah: America’s Redrock Wilderness’ was made possible through the generous donation of photos, music, and words from Utah’s citizens who wish to pass this heritage onto future generations, including narration by Robert Redford.

The multimedia slideshow will be shown in conjunction with a presentation on the status of the Utah wilderness movement – including the current effort to protect the Greater Canyonlands region.  This inspirational and informational event is a must see for all citizens.  America’s public lands were preserved for the people.  Competing interests of oil, gas and off-road uses on public lands will be discussed.  to make the difference in The public is invited to learn about this timely topic.  Bird-friendly coffee (shade grown and organic) and fresh baked cookies will follow the program.  The Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center is home to Bucks County Audubon Society and located at 2877 Creamery Road, New Hope, PA.  The Center is open to the community every week day. 10am to 4pm, in addition to some weekend days, and for special programs.  Visit our website at www.BCAS.org or call 215.297.5880 to get involved in bird conservation, environmental education, and to experience the beauty of nature.
