Travis Hammill

On Thursday, March 9,  at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury, Otter Creek Audubon held the third of our three Cabin Fever Lecture series presentation of the winter. Wild Utah, a travelling multimedia educational event, presented by Travis Hammill, the Eastern Grassroots Organizer with the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA). The presentation included images and films of the stunning beauty, cultural history, and natural habitats of many types of plants and animals and discussed the threats that are posed to these amazing areas such as off-road vehicle use, fracking, oil drilling, potash and tar-sands production. Mr. Hammill also discussed ways that attendees of the presentation could help preserve these wonders of Utah and join the movement to protect America’s public lands.

Unfortunately we were unable to record this presentation, but if you would like to learn more about what this organization does, please visit the SUWA website.

This was the last of our Cabin Fever lectures for this year, but will be back again next year with another three presentations to help you get through the winter. In the meantime, many of our past presentations can be viewed on our website at this link.
