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.
