Program was presented on Monday, February 5, 1996 at the offices of Holland & Hart in Denver, Colo.

Historically, state trust lands have been managed for public schools revenue. Now there is pressure to protect some state lands as open space. Should trust lands be managed for broader public values? Is this consistent with existing legal mandates? Speakers: State Land Board Commissioner Maxine Stewart; John Evans, Colorado Board of Education; Reeves Brown, Colorado Cattlemen's Association; The Nature Conservancy's Colorado State Director Mark Burget. Special focus on the recently implemented Multiple Use Program and also on how The Nature Conservancy is working with the State Land Board to preserve resources.
