Archaeologist to discuss Nine Mile Canyon preservation

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Pam Miller, who many people know in the area as a former USU Eastern Archaeology professor, will be presenting the program titled "The Rebirth and Renewal of Utah's Nine Mile Canyon" on Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum's upstairs classroom.

The presentation is part of the Castle Valley Chapter of the Utah Statewide Archaeological Society's on going programs this year.

The presentation will center on preserving the Nine Mile Canyon's treasures. She will give an assessment of the current preservation efforts in the canyon.

She will discuss the 2010 Tavaputs Plateau Programmatic Agreement, which was the result of a compromise between natural gas developers and those that are doing preservation in the canyon. She will report on what the end was supposed to be, what the Nine-Mile Coalition saw as the beginning and what has subsequently happened with the implementation of the agreement. She will focus on the "process" of public participation, transparency in government dealings and two agreement stipulations that have not been implemented: the site stewardship program and the interpretive plans.

She will also comment on her media experiences with the New York Times, Irish Public Radio, the London Financial times and others.
