Press Conference — A Year in Review Oil & Gas Leasing in Utah
December 11, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-6
Join the Sierra Club, Center for Biological Diversity, and Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance to spotlight the final oil and gas lease sale of the 2018 year. This year, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) auctioned hundreds of thousands of acres of public lands in Utah for oil and gas development. Many parcels sold sit adjacent to some of our most cherished landscapes like Bears Ears National Monument and the San Rafael Swell — just to name a few.
On Tuesday, December 11th the BLM will be auctioning off over 150,000 more acres of public lands including lands adjacent to Canyonlands National Park. In response, we will be hosting a press conference in the Capitol Rotunda to emphasize the administration’s continued efforts to develop dirty fuels at the doorsteps of our parks, monuments, and priceless special places.
We hope that you join us in letting the Administration and Utah Delegation know that Utahns want to protect these cherished landscapes and keep dirty fuels in the ground! Be ready to chant, and bring your signs!
When: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Where: Utah State Capitol Rotunda
Who: You, the community, and local organizations
