We are super excited to be hosting another speaker at Fontana!

Clayton Daughtenbaugh is the Midwest Regional Organizer for the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. He will be presenting a slideshow documenting citizen efforts to designate public lands in southern Utah's spectacular canyon country as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System.
