Springville His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety lec­ture sched­uled

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Daryl Tucker

Floyd Miner of the Springville His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety will present a lec­ture on Wed­nes­day, April 27, dis­cussing the cen­tu­ryand- a- half his­tory of the im­pacts of non- na­tive peo­ples on the moun­tain range lands and sub­se­quently des­ig­nated pub­lic lands that sur­round our com­mu­ni­ties.

In the late 1840s, Par­ley P. Pratt said, “The sup­ply of pas­ture for graz­ing an­i­mals is with­out limit in ev­ery di­rec­tion. Millions of peo­ple could live in these coun­tries and raise cat­tle and sheep to any amount.”

The ques­tion to be ex­plored on April 27 may be, “How has that vision ac­tu­ally played out and what have we learned of the re­al­i­ties of our re­la­tion­ship to the land we in­habit?”

This event prom­ises to pro­vide an in­ter­est­ing and in­for­ma­tive dis­cus­sion and ev­ery­one is in­vited to at­tend. The event will be­gin at 7 p.m. in the Springville Mu­seum of Art, 126 E. 400 South, Springville. Ad­mis­sion is free.
