Climbers Relationship with Place

By May 19, 2019 No Comments

This show explores the social and ecological impacts of climbing in the Indian Creek Area, Utah. We talk with Zeke Baker and Steve Fick. Zeke is a PhD candidate in sociology at UC Davis while Steve is a post-doctoral research ecologist with University of the Colorado Boulder and the USGS here in Moab. The two have teamed up to study rock climbing in the Indian Creek area and the social, ecological, and political interactions of climbers with this fragile landscape.
