ZCFI Lecture: Engaging Youth – The Next Generation of Public Land Employees and Stewards

Thursday, April 14, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.

Come join us to learn about the Intergovernmental Internship Cooperative’s (IIC) efforts to expose young people to the wide variety of learning experiences, internships and potential career opportunities available in public land management. This unique partnership includes the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management, Utah State Parks, Utah Department of Natural Resources, the US Forest Service, several Paiute Tribal Governments, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and both Southern Utah University and Dixie State University. This partnership was recognized in 2013 with the Secretary of Interior’s Partnership in Conservation Award for their “exceptional contributions to conserve our natural and cultural heritage while preparing the next generation of stewards and professionals.”

Presenters will be Paul Roelandt, Superintendent at Cedar Breaks National Monument; Jeff Bradybaugh, Superintendent of Zion National Park; and Brian Raper and Bridget Eastep of Southern Utah University.
