The Greater Canyonlands area is a landscape of plateaus, stunning geologic formations, 10,000 year old archeological sites, and unmatched natural beauty — including iconic Utah landmarks such as Labyrinth Canyon, Indian Creek, White Canyon, Fiddler Butte, Robbers Roost, Lockhart Basin and the Dirty Devil River. The area encompasses 1.4 million acres of Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) land surrounding Canyonlands National Park. President Obama has the power to protect the 1.4 million acres of public BLM land surrounding Canyonlands National Park with the stroke of a pen – if we can convince him to do so. But so far, the Obama administration has continued to defend President Bush’s plans that leave this area open to rampant off-road vehicle abuse, proposed uranium and tar sand mining, and oil and gas development.
Join us for a long weekend of adventure, learning and fun as we learn about the threats to this region and the strategies for gaining real protection. The Greater Canyonlands Coalition includes Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council, National Parks Conservation Association, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and Coloradans for Utah Wilderness.
