Potluck & Slideshow: Lost Cowboy Country

Trip dates: Wednesday, February 12, 2020 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

FREE SLIDESHOW & POTLUCK SERIES Potluck @ 6:30 PM, Show @ 7:15 PM. Join hiker/photographer/environmentalist Harvey Halpern as he takes us to the most beautiful, least visited Public Lands in Utah's Canyon Country. Most of these lands were included in the Tribal proposal for Bears Ears, but none of them were included in the original designation of Bears Ears National Monument by President Obama. This would be rectified by a new bill that seeks to restore Bears Ears AND include all the lands proposed by the five Native America tribes. This show details a 26-day backpack trip to Lost Cowboy Country. Join Harvey as he shows you Public Lands that rarely see other backpackers. He'll also detail the threats facing these lands and what you can do to help protect them. About our Speaker: Harvey Halpern of Cambridge, MA has been exploring the most remote corners of Utah's Canyon country since 1974. His off-trail backpacks have been as long as 33 days where he'll rarely see other backpackers. Potluck Info:
