Bedrock Lectures: Stephen Trimble

Canyons in the Crosshairs: Fracking and Climate Change in Utah

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 12:00 PM - 12:50 PM

In the months leading up to the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Human Rights, Fracking and Climate Change, Spring Creek Project presents the Bedrock Lectures on Human Rights and Climate Change.

This online series features leading scientists, attorneys, writers, community leaders, activists, and artists. Together, the lectures create a chorus of voices and ideas that will invite audiences to imagine how we can build communities and lives in a world where environmental crises quickly become human rights crises.

We will release a new Bedrock Lecture every Wednesday from January 31 to May 30, 2018. The lectures are free and publically available on our website and social media channels. Each lecture will be about 20 minutes, and we invite you to watch them from your desk, with a group of friends, or at a community gathering.


Stephen Trimble, writer and photographer, Red Rock Stories, will present his lecture, "Canyons in the Crosshairs: Fracking and Climate Change in Utah," on March 14, 2018.   

As writer, photographer, and editor, Stephen Trimble has published twenty-five books, including "Bargaining for Eden: The Fight for the Last Open Spaces in America," "The People: Indians of the American Southwest," and "Red Rock Stories: Three Generations of Writers Speak on Behalf of Utah's Public Lands." He has taught writing at the University of Utah, served as board chair of Utah Interfaith Power & Light, and currently serves on the advisory board of Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment. The breadth of Trimble’s awards mirrors the wide embrace of his work: The Sierra Club's Ansel Adams Award for photography and conservation; a Wallace Stegner Centennial Fellowship at the University of Utah Tanner Humanities Center; The National Cowboy Museum’s Western Heritage “Wrangler” Award; and a Doctor of Humane Letters from his alma mater, Colorado College, honoring his efforts to increase our understanding of Western landscapes and peoples.
