Wild Utah Podcast, Episode 4: Drills Gone Wild

Jan 28th, 2019 Written by suwa

Welcome to the SUWA podcast, Wild Utah!

Dave Pacheco discusses the environmental consequences of oil and gas leasing on public lands with SUWA Staff Attorney Landon Newell. Millions of acres of public lands in Utah are still natural or in a wild condition. It’s these places, proposed for wilderness designation in America’s Redrock Wilderness Act, that SUWA works to defend. So, what happens when the BLM proposes drilling in those wild places?

Among his portfolio of duties, Landon is SUWA’s go-to staffer when it comes to understanding, tracking, and challenging oil & gas industry activities on Utah’s wild BLM lands.
