Description Transcript (24 pages) of interview by Robert DeBirk with Jim Catlin, on June 3, 2008
Abstract Jim Catlin is a native Utahn who has been active in public land issues for more than 25 years. His PhD from the University of California at Berkeley focused on GIS and land use planning. His MS in regional land use planning at the University of Utah analyzed Wasatch Front air quality. Jim began his work in conservation as a volunteer for the Sierra Club. His skills and love of adventure propelled him toward pivotal conservation victories for public lands in Utah. He is articulate and engaging. In addition to his long-time work with the Sierra Club, Jim was essential to the Utah Wilderness Coalition's effort to protect wilderness-quality lands in Utah. In this interview, he offers an in-depth, behind-the-scene look at the machinations of government with striking examples and good humor. In 1996, Jim founded the Wild Utah Project to support the work of other Utah conservation activists. His awards include the John Muir Award, the Sierra Club's highest conservation award, and the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance Conservation Award. Utah Environmental Oral History Project.
