2010 NRLC's Martz Annual Summer Conference: The Past, Present, and Future of Our Public Lands

Colorado Law's Natural Resources Law Center is proud to announce that its 31st Annual Summer Conference will examine the past, present, and future of our public lands as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1970 Public Land Law Review Commission's Report: One Third of Our Nation's Lands. Please join us as we bring together past and present agency officials, policymakers, lawyers, and interested citizens for what promises to be an informative and provocative program.

In 1964, Congress established the Public Land Law Review Commission (PLLRC) to review the public land laws of the United States and to determine whether revisions were necessary. The Commission was comprised of six members appointed by the President, six by the U.S. Senate and six by the U.S. House. Congressman Wayne Aspinall of Colorado served as Chair. In 1970, the Commission issued its report, One Third of Our Nation's Lands. This influential report became a blueprint for much future public lands legislation including, most notably, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act and the National Forest Management Act.

It's time to reflect on the need for a new Commission and a new report to address the challenges for our public lands in the 21st century. This conference will begin with historical and economic perspectives on public lands policy, followed by sessions on resource issues. Sessions will have 2-3 speakers or panels. The program is still very much in its formative stage, and we welcome input on possible speakers, panel topics, and other ideas for promoting a culturally and intellectually diverse program.
