Abstract Joan Degiorgio was born in Ogden, Utah. She spent over two decades working as a natural resources planner in the private sector and for various state and federal agencies, including the Forest Service. She is currently the Northern Mountains Regional Director at the Nature Conservancy. Much of the interview deals with her experience working governmental and private sector agencies with regards to public lands, in particular those in the Uinta Basin and the surrounding area, and what shifts have occurred in the way agencies go about assessing public lands. Degiorgio is a plant specialist so her responses mainly concern the role of plants in the public´s perception and treatment of land and how they figure into legislation concerning public lands. Project: Utah Environmental. Interviewer: Desiree Beaudry.
