Air quality in the Western United States – particularly the Southwest Region – is a major environmental, economic and public health dilemma and over the past several years, NPCA has been instrumental in protecting the air quality surrounding the many iconic National Parks right here in our backyard. The 20th Annual Stegner Center Symposium, that will be held at the Rose Wagner Performing Art Center in Salt Lake City, will highlight the problems of air pollution and interdisciplinary speakers will address the causes, the various health impacts, economic tensions and ethical issues that accompany this increasing environmental concern. The NPCA Southwest Regional Team invites you to attend.
