Southeastern Utah

Southeastern Utah is home to some of the most inspiring and significant landscapes in the West, including red rock canyons and juniper dotted mesas.

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.

Why Southeastern Utah

Home to stunning places like Arches and Canyonlands national parks, Southeastern Utah has many special lands that need to be protected.

Our work in Southeastern Utah

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.

Our partners

We could not accomplish our conservation goals without the groups and communities that we work with in the state of Utah.
 

  • 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.
