Comprised of over 1.4 million acres of publicly-owned wildlands with sheer canyon walls, deep rivers, soaring mesas, abundant wildlife, and numerous archaeological and cultural sites, designating Greater Canyonlands as a National Monument would protect the landscape and habitats from the imminent threats of mining and drilling. This would fulfill the dream of the original conservation advocates some 70 years ago, for all generations.

There is too much at stake to allow our wild lands to remain unprotected. This magical red rock landscape is a critical part of our state's outdoor recreation industry which pumps $5.8 billion into Utah’s economy and supports 65,000 jobs in the state.

Tell Governor Herbert to initiate an open and transparent process to decide how best to manage and protect Greater Canyonlands.

Send a message to Gov. Herbert about Greater Canyonlands

Dear [Decision Maker],

In a Nov. 14, 2012 letter to President Obama, Utah delegation members Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, and Reps. Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz called for a public process to discuss the future of Greater Canyonlands, an area world renowned for its wildness and majesty.

The delegation's suggestion came in response to another letter from outdoor industry leaders asking President Obama to designate Greater Canyonlands a national monument.

Such a process is something the Governor's office should encourage.
