Sierra Club to host program on wilderness preservation efforts at Glen Ellyn library

GLEN ELLYN – A program coming to the Glen Ellyn Public Library will give residents a glimpse into the largest network of undesignated wilderness lands remaining in the contiguous United States.

The River Prairie Group of the Sierra Club will host a program entitled “A Wilderness Icon: America’s Red Rock Wilderness” at 7 p.m. Sept. 16 at the Glen Ellyn Public Library.

Clayton Daughenbaugh, conservation organizer with the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, will speak about the red rock canyonlands wilderness, which is located in southern Utah.

The program will include a multi-media slideshow titled “Wild Utah” that discusses citizen efforts to designate public lands in southern Utah's canyon country as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System.

The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and its partners in the Utah Wilderness Coalition are seeking local support for the “Citizens’ Proposal” to protect wilderness areas in Utah’s red rock canyonlands. Legislation and other government actions are pending.
