About The Lands No One Else Wanted – The Story of Our Public Lands

The Lands No One Else Wanted – The Story of Our Public Lands

Presented by Jeff Kitchens, Deschutes Field Office Manager, USDOI - BLM - Prineville District

 

Kitchens will weave the United States’ history of public policy and key events into a single story that will tell about our country’s complicated relationship with its lands from the time of the Republic to today. 

Topics will include public land laws and legislation, land use through time, human geography and expansion (including railroad history), and the complications and controversies associated with public land management.

About Old St. Francis History Pub

Old St. Francis History Pub

These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.

This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
