Home to world-famous scenery and biologically rich wild places, Utah still lags behind all other Western states in public lands protection. Utah has less designated wilderness than Florida. Just 2 percent of Utah is wilderness; the average for western states is 16 percent. Industry-friendly politicians and a culture that mistrusts federal authority have kept Utah’s public lands under threat. But times are changing. Right now, we have the best chance in 30 years to designate new wilderness – and lots of it. With your help, we can protect millions of acres of outstanding public lands across eastern and southern Utah.
