About this event

This event is provided by National Policy Consensus Center

While the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge is still
making headlines, the earlier groundbreaking collaborative approach to
complex land use issues in Harney County has largely been overlooked. That
effort involved local ranchers, environmental groups, and federal agencies,
and set a precedent for working through similar land management issues in
Oregon and the west. In this first annual public lecture, Daniel
Kemmis—nationally distinguished author and Wallace Stegner Prize
winner—will discuss this new innovative approach to management of western
lands and how it pertains to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Comprehensive
Conservation Plan, the Sage Grouse Conservation Plan, and other western land
management conflicts.
