New West’s Daily Roundup for March 23, 2017 featured the Why Public Lands Matter conference that is to be held at Boise State University this Tuesday, March 28th. Montana State Governor Steve Bullock will be the keynote speakers. The conference will highlight the importance of federal public lands to all Americans. Freemuth is quoted saying, “They’re a critical source of outdoor recreation such as hiking, fishing and hunting. And, they’re an important economic engine driving tourism and the dollars it brings to the states in which these lands reside. When we talk about what should happen on our public lands, we are practicing democracy.”
