Protect Utah's Canyon Country for recreation and wildlife.

Utah's Grand and San Juan counties are home to Canyonlands and Arches National Park. The Bureau of Land Management and State Trust lands surrounding the Parks are utilized extensively for recreational activities. Local communities are dependent on these lands intact for tourism and recreation. If the gas, oil, and mineral leases from the BLM's Master Leasing Plan are approved, the resulting loss of rock formations,scenic views, archaeological sites, wildlife and wildlife habitat will be permanent. Additionally, if State Trust Lands are opened to development new access roads will cut though these public lands. Keep Utah's Canyon Country for recreation, tourism, outdoor education, and wildlife habitat. Keep energy development out of San Juan and Grand Counties.
