Kelly joined Gore as an engineer in 1983 after graduating summa cum laude from the University of Delaware with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering.

To Conserve Unimpaired The Evolution of the National Park Idea @ The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Sep 26 @ 12:15 pm – 1:30 pm
To Conserve Unimpaired The Evolution of the National Park Idea @ The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law

Bob Keiter will read from and discuss his new book which argues the goal of the national parks system “to conserve unimpaired” is not as straightforward as it seems. Keiter traces the history of the national park idea from its inception to its uncertain future. Ultimately, Keiter demonstrates that parks cannot be treated as special islands and must be managed as critical cores of a larger ecosystem. Today’s mandate must remain to conserve unimpaired – but Keiter shows how the national park idea can and must go much farther.
