Freethought Fellowship Meetup – January 13 at 11am: The Value of Public Lands

The 2nd Sunday of each month marks our Freethought Fellowship meetup, and this month, Sunday January 13, at 11am, is by retired Professional Wildlife Biologist,  Donald Seibert who will present on the history and importance of public lands in the U.S.

Public lands have been part of the United States since the Treaty of Paris in 1783. Every state has some public lands, says Donald, but he will be focusing his talk on the Western United States which have most of the public lands.
