Utah Native Plant Society Monthly Meeting

Dear GSLA Members & Friends,

Our friends at Utah Native Plant Society have invited us to join them at their monthly chapter meeting for a presentation by one of our very own, Wayne Martinson.

Topic: Envisioning a sustainable population living in harmony with Utah’s natural environment
Presenter: Wayne Martinson, Board member & former Chair of Utah Population and Environment Council
When: Wednesday April 5th, 7:30 pm
Where: REI (3300 S and 3300 E)

Absent from many discussions about environmental quality, conservation and sustainability is any mention of human population growth. Yet we constantly see the impacts that pressure from increased demand puts on our natural resources and habitats. In 1997 a group of citizens formed the Utah Population and Environment Council (UPEC) to study the issues. This month’s speaker will bring them to the forefront.

Wayne Martinson is a Board Member and former Chair of UPEC. He has been very active in conservation in Utah for many years, and served as National Audubon Society’s coordinator for the Utah Important Bird Areas program. In his talk he will describe definitions of progress, and voluntary planning for small families.

Hope to see you there!
