Powerful UVSF meeting gets coverage in the Herald, the Tribune and online

Our September 19th meeting was a big success. With 35 people in attendance, the Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment and the Utah Moms for Clean Air greatly impressed the audience with the critical state of Utah Valley's air quality, and the serious threat it faces from coal-burning power plants and vehicle exhaust.

The event was well covered by the media. Articles about the event appeared both in the Provo Daily Herald (click HERE to read) and the Salt Lake Tribune (click HERE to read). KSL radio also called for an interview with the presenters. In addition, a film crew from Your Environmental Roadtrip Tour (YERT.com) was present to film the high impact presentations. They plan to post an extended clip from the presentations at their website, visited by contemporary viewers interested in the environment.

It is amazing how far the Utah Valley Sierra Forum has come in a matter of 10 months. We owe it to those who are supporting and contributing to what we do. We owe very special thanks to Bepe Kafka who recently resigned as our hard-working Vice Chair of the UVSF, and to Marsh McLean who tirelessly directed and helped bring into being the "Living Green in Utah Valley" Expo which recently took place in Provo. Hats off to you both!!
