JENNY HOLMS: WILD UTAH: AMERICA’S RED ROCK WILDERNESS
Jenny Holmes, WA-OR Field Organizer for the Southern
Utah Wilderness Alliance, is an environmental activist
and organizer who fell in love with the redrock country of
Utah on a geology field trip and returned many times for
family vacations and rafting on the San Juan River. She has
organized campaigns on energy and climate policy, and
developed and managed sustainable food system projects.
Her academic background is in environmental science,
environmental ethics and theology.
Wild Utah: America’s Redrock Wilderness is a multi-media
slideshow documenting citizen efforts to designate public
lands in southern Utah’s spectacular canyon country as
part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. This
20-minute journey, narrated by Robert Redford, through
redrock splendor invigorates and motivates viewers to participate in the movement to protect
these unique lands.
In conjunction with this slideshow, Jenny will discuss the status of the Utah wilderness
movement – including the current effort to protect the Greater Canyonlands region and protect
national monuments. This inspirational and informational event is a must see for people
wishing to become personally involved in making a difference in this tremendous American
public lands conservation effort.
