6:30 am - 8:00 pm    Sage Advice: Greater Sage-Grouse Ecology and Conservation

Lecture & Readings / Cooperative Extension

A 2015 decision by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service kept the Greater Sage-Grouse off the Endangered Species list – but what does this mean for their populations, and for the people that live and work in their habitat? Come learn about the ecology of these fascinating creatures and the community based conservation efforts to sustain their populations from sage-grouse experts Dr. Terry Messmer, USU Professor of Wildlife Conflict Management, and Allison Jones, Executive Director for The Wild Utah Project. This event is a collaborative effort brought to you by Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter and the Utah Chapter Sierra Club, Wasatch Back Network.

7:00 am - 11:55 pm    Work in Progress Mural Project at Utah State University

Exhibit / Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

The Work in Progress is a collage-style mural that is a stunning visualization of the impact of women on our society. It is a community project and the brainchild of Jann Haworth. To date, over 120 Utah men and women have created stencil portraits of more than 150 women who are catalysts for change in the arts, sciences and social evolution. Their portraits were then made into a beautiful collage by artist Liberty Blake. The mural is over 40 feet long and growing. A reproduction of the mural will be on view in the lower level of Utah State University’s Merrill-Cazier Library January 16 – March 29, 2018. Some 30 USU faculty and students will contribute to this mural as they propose names of women from their fields for inclusion in new segments of the mural. This project is being organized for USU by the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art who is partnering with Merrill-Cazier Library on this Year of the Arts initiative.
