Celebrating Earth Day On Wednesday's Access Utah

earth_day_2015_22nd_april_2.jpg

It's an Earth Day tradition on Access Utah: we invite Utah writers to reflect on the environment. This year, Stephen Trimble, whose books include "Bargaining for Eden: The Fight for the Last Open Spaces in America," says he's been thinking about climate change and the moral responsibility of the writer to speak up for our relationship with each other and with the earth.  

    

We'll also be joined by Teresa Jordan, author of "The Year of Living Virtuously" and other books; and Tim Wagner, with Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment and the Sierra Club. We'll reflect on the earth and the land from a poetic and a political perspective. And we'll ask you to tell us about your favorite place and what you love about it. Join us for Access Utah on Earth Day 2015.
