Brown Bag Lunch Series: Saving Grand Canyon: Dams, Dreams and a Noble Myth

September 19
Noon – 1:00 p.m.

Dub and Mozelle Richardson Theater

During the 20th century, developers, as well as state and federal agencies, made numerous attempts to build dams in the Grand Canyon, which, during the 1960s, culminated in a massive outpouring of public protest generated by the Sierra Club and other conservationist organizations. Although the dams were never built, the fight to keep them out of the Grand Canyon resulted in the adoption of the most comprehensive environmental legislation in history and propelled the Sierra Club to the modern environmental movement leadership. Join Byron Pearson, Professor of History at West Texas A&M University, as he discusses dams, dreams and a noble myth. Bring your lunch or purchase one at The Museum Grill. Reservations are not required. Free admission to the Theater and The Museum Grill.
