Why this petition matters

The idea is to safeguard public access to Tabby Mountain and manage these highlands west of Tabiona as a state forest or wildlife area.

“By purchasing Tabby Mountain, DNR can protect and keep public one of Utah’s most pristine and desirable high-elevation areas,” agency spokesman Nathan Schwebach wrote in an email. “Tabby Mountain is a crucial wildlife habitat for mule deer, elk, and greater sage grouse. It’s a migratory corridor for big game and a significant recreational destination for hunters, campers, wildlife viewers and others.”

“If it sells privately, so many families will lose the heritage they have had. “It is a small valley. Heritage, stories, family traditions are still there.”

“Loss of access would break many hearts in Tabiona, according to Mayor Charlie Jr. and Carol Turnbow, whose family has been ranching, logging and dairying in the scenic valley along the Duchesne River for more than a century.”

We do NOT want it turned into CWMU’s ever! 

We do NOT want it bought by a private buyer!

Gov. Gary Herbert, time to up the budget and save this piece of land we can never get back!
