Fourth-generation cattle rancher Joel Bousman of Boulder is on a five-member panel discussing a half-century of wilderness in Wyoming.
Bousman developed a permittee monitoring system for public lands grazing. The discussion and reception is 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10, at the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture auditorium.
The program, “The Wyoming Wilderness Act 1984–2014: History, Politics, and Perceptions” commemorates both the 50th anniversary of the federal Wilderness Act signed into law Sept. 3, 1964, and the 30th anniversary of the Wyoming Wilderness Act that became law in 1984.
Steve Smutko, Spicer Chair for Collaborative Practice at the UW Haub School and Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources, will moderate the discussion.
