    There has been an ongoing debate about who gets to do what on federal public lands. Public lands provide a wide range of environmental benefits. Granting protective status to these lands generally imposes restrictions on resource development and extraction activities and thus often generates conflict and debate among public and private stakeholders. In the U.S. this is especially the case for national monuments, which are areas that contain significant historic, prehistoric, cultural, and/or geologic resources.This community event will offer more understanding regarding the national monuments debate. The Hutchings Museum & Institute is hosting a special screening of the Patagonia documentary "Public Trust," and has invited state legislators to attend and respond to the film. By hearing both sides individuals will be better able to make an informed opinion and act accordingly.Registration is mandatory for this free event.
