Every year for Earth Day, we check in with writer and photographer Stephen Trimble, author of “Bargaining for Eden: The Fight for the Last Open Spaces in America,” and many other books. Next time on Access Utah, Stephen Trimble joins us along with Terri Martin, Intermountain West Organizer with the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance; and Jesse Prentice-Dunn, Policy Director with the Center for Western Priorities.

We’ll be talking about the 30x30 initiative, the Biden administration's plan to protect 30% of U.S. lands and ocean territories by 2030. We’ll ask how Utah fits into this plan. We’ll also talk about David Treuer’s proposal to give Native American tribes full authority to manage national parks.
