Commentary: Emery County land bill doesn’t go far enough to protect scenic wonder outside of shrunken Utah monuments

san rafael swellLogan Hastings, a junior double majoring in geography and environmental and sustainability studies, voiced her concern about recent legislation for public lands in Utah. "This bill is a step in the right direction, but it falls short. Emery County is one of the most accessible areas to us students. It is the place we go to re-energize for academic success and build relationships with each other. This bill would jeopardize that access by leaving sections of world-class scenery and recreation opportunities unprotected, and further threatening large sensitive areas with increased motorized routes." Her op-ed was published in the Salt Lake Tribune
