While some parts of the region like Dinosaur National Monument are already protected, many more areas are still at risk. The Wilderness Society is working to preserve some of the wildest parts of this unique landscape.
The Greater Dinosaur Region is an area with a wealth of natural beauty. These wild landscapes – and the bones of the dinosaurs that the area is named for – are an economic driver for local communities. Protecting the wild areas of the region is important for the people and the wildlife that live here.
We’re working with our partners to protect some of the wildest areas in the Greater Dinosaur region, including:
- Red desert cliffs of Wyoming’s Adobe Town.
- Multicolored badlands of Colorado’s Vermillion Basin.
- Proposed wilderness lands surrounding Dinosaur National Monument in both Colorado and Utah.
We couldn’t accomplish our conservation goals in the Greater Dinosaur Region alone. We partner with many local groups and some national groups and federal agencies to keep the Greater Dinosaur Region protected.
Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.

Every year, a coalition of conservation and environmental groups produce a report to help Congress as it debates the federal budget for the year. This year, it illustrates the impact of budget cuts on our communities and the environment, and the importance of reinvesting in conservation and natural resources programs for Fiscal Year 2017.
