On March 24, 1999, the Andrus Center for Public Policy convened The Future of Our Public Lands II: A Second Symposium on Federal Land Policy. This symposium was held to follow up on the first public-land symposium, which met in Boise on February 11, 1998 on the same topic. At that symposium, the featured speakers were Mike Dombeck, Chief of the U. S. Forest Service (USFS); Patrick Shea, Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM); Robert Stanton, Director of the National Park Service (NPS); and Robert Armstrong, Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management of the U. S. Department of the Interior (DOI).

The leaders of the three federal land bureaus were invited to return to Boise in 1999, and they did. Jamie Clark, the Director of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, joined them. Pat Shea, now DOI’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management, gave the luncheon address, and Tom Fry replaced him on the speakers’ podium as Acting Director of BLM.
