The Size of the Risk: Histories of Multiple Use in the Great Basin @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Feb 23 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
The Size of the Risk: Histories of Multiple Use in the Great Basin @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

The Great Basin, a stark and beautiful desert filled with sagebrush deserts and mountain ranges, is the epicenter for public lands conflicts. Arising out of the multiple, often incompatible uses created throughout the twentieth century, these struggles reveal the tension inherent within the multiple use concept, a management philosophy that promises equitable access to the region’s resources and economic gain to those who live there.

Multiple use was originally conceived as a way to legitimize the historical use of public lands for grazing without precluding future uses, such as outdoor recreation, weapons development, and wildlife management. It was applied to the Great Basin to bring the region, once seen as worthless, into the national economic fold. Land managers, ranchers, mining interests, wilderness and wildlife advocates, outdoor recreationists, and even the military adopted this ideology to accommodate, promote, and sanction a multitude of activities on public lands, particularly those overseen by the Bureau of Land Management. Some of these uses are locally driven and others are nationally mandated, but all have exacted a cost from the region’s human and natural environment.

Water, Community, and the Culture of Owning – a Wallace Stegner Center Lecture @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 22 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
Water, Community, and the Culture of Owning - a Wallace Stegner Center Lecture @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

This lecture is in conjunction with the Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium

“Good government, if it comes, will emerge out of a heightened sense of the ways citizens are linked and interdependent; it will draw upon new recognitions of community and the ways we are the same, not different; it will gain strength when people talk more of the common good as a matter of public morality and of obligations of all people to cooperate as well as compete.” – Eric Freyfogle

Water in the West: Exploring Untapped Solutions – Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 23 @ 8:00 am – 12:45 pm
Water in the West: Exploring Untapped Solutions - Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The Stegner Center’s 22nd Annual Symposium, to be held March 23 to 24, 2017, will focus on “Water in the West: Untapped Solutions.” The symposium will address how the twin drivers of climate disruption and demographic change are likely to impact water availability in the West over the next 50 years.

With these challenges as a backdrop, the Stegner Center’s solution-oriented symposium will focus on practical solutions to problems. Specifically, the Symposium will address four sets of issues: changing law—legal innovations to address these issues; changing science and the role of technology in improving data-driven water resource planning and management; changing infrastructure and new approaches like recycling wastewater; and changing behaviors—creating incentives that bring about the changes needed to respond to a dynamic world. The symposium will be interdisciplinary in nature and include speakers from the physical, biological and social sciences, academia, government, industry, public interest organizations, and the legal profession.
