However, more than 15 million acres of southeastern Utah’s magnificent lands and wildlife habitat are vulnerable to oil and gas development. The Wilderness Society is working to keep these uniquely American landscapes out of harm’s way.
Home to stunning places like Arches and Canyonlands national parks, Southeastern Utah has many special lands that need to be protected.
Our campaigns work to keep the most special wild areas permanently protected and to keep oil and gas drilling away from pristine areas. Our successes include protecting Grand Staircase-Escalante as a national monument.

Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
Add your voice to important wilderness causes and take action to stop threats to our wildlands by joining our community of wilderness activists.
