Cache Valley Daily Monday, Oct. 08, 2018
Next week Utah State University hosts its 13th Annual “Restoring the West” Conference that focuses on the many government agencies who are required by law to manage public lands to achieve sustained yields of multiple uses. Megan Dettenmaier is a professor of Wildlife Resources and a member of the conference committee who says each year there is a theme. ... “So we cycle with what’s on people’s radar. But we’re always looking to restore these landscapes to their best possible state and when we do that we are fulfilling the theme and the mission of our conference.” At this conference researchers and managers will share ideas on issues ranging from solar energy on public lands in Nevada to illegal marijuana farms and their impacts to public lands in California. ... The two-day conference is Tuesday and Wednesday, October 16-17.
