Celebrate Public Lands Day in Bears Ears National Monument, near Blanding, Utah

Join us in one of the most remarkable landscapes—both natural and human—in the nation as we team up with the U.S. Forest Service for two days of stewardship projects valuable to protecting the health and sustainability of Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument.

This five-day Broadwork event will consist of two days of stewardship, one day of hiking, and evening guest speakers. We’ll be camping under the stars in Bears Ears National Monument—the sacred lands of the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and Ute Mountain Ute tribes, and a landscape of critical importance and in need of restored protections.

We will be camping near Woodenshoe Point near the Dark Canyon Wilderness among gorgeous ponderosa, Douglas fir, aspen, and Gambel oak. (Once registered, we will send detailed directions on the exact location of our campsite). There is a vault toilet, but no water—participants are asked to bring a 5-gallon jug of water to share with the group.

The stewardship work will include finishing up a wooden rail fence at the trailhead that helps manage livestock use in the Dark Canyon Wilderness. If we get finished with that project, we will then take on trail work on the Hammond Canyon Trail.

Provided:

  • Thursday dinner, Friday-Sunday meals, and Monday breakfast (plus field snacks)
  • Stewardship tools

You pack:

  • Full 5-gallon jug of water to share with group
  • Camping gear
  • A reliable vehicle
  • Field work and camping attire
  • Libations and extra snacks of your choice
  • A Broads attitude to work hard and have fun! 

Broadwork ability level: Moderate, but we’ll try to accommodate all skill and ability levels.

Registration Fee: $210

Due to Covid restrictions, registration is currently limited to a maximum of 10, so sign up today!
