Public Land Policy after the Trump Administration: Is This a Turning Point?

The Trump Administration has moved aggressively to open previously protected public lands to fossil fuel and other forms of intensive development and to roll back protections in a host of other ways, including starving and shrinking the agencies that manage these lands. Is this the harbinger of fundamental change in the trajectory of public land policy, or is it an aberration? Distinguished Lecturer, Professor John Leshy will be drawing upon material from his much anticipated book, Our Common Ground: A History of America's Public Lands.
