Public Lands Initiative Forum - April 5

Mar 25, 2016

Join the Project For Deeper Understanding and KPCW for a public forum on

The Public Lands Initiative: Is it Right for Us?

  • What is the Public Lands Initiative?
  • Will it protect Utah’s wilderness lands?
  • Will it promote economic development?
  • Who will win and who will lose?
  • Can the right balance be found?


The purpose of this public forum is education through respectful listening and discussion.  It will be an opportunity to provide information and insights, as well as to correct misunderstandings.

The Project for Deeper Understanding takes on the sensitive topic of abortion at it's forum next week.  KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.
