Utah Land Grab Hits a Bump

Utah’s leaders have declared war on Utah wilderness.

They’ve created all sorts of wacky schemes to take control of federal lands in Utah – places such as Greater Canyonlands, the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and the San Rafael Swell.

They’re demanding the United States give them over 30 million acres of federally owned public land. They filed 30 lawsuits against the federal government claiming state control of more than 39,000 miles of “roads” (many of which are just wash bottoms or faint trails). And they passed legislation prohibiting federal law enforcement officers from enforcing the law on federally controlled lands. Whew.

But with your help, we’re fighting back.

Last week Utah’s attack on the United States got a course correction.

A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order, blocking the law that would have made it a crime for BLM and Forest Service rangers to do their jobs on federal public lands.

We’re not done yet. We won’t quit until the amazing landscapes of the redrock get the protection they need.

Will you help us fight the biggest threat to Utah’s redrock wilderness we’ve experienced in 20 years, by making a donation today?

We’re in this fight with everything we have. To fight the legal battles we’ve put together a team of more than 20 lawyers and half a dozen researchers. And we’ve launched a massive organizing and outreach campaign, going door-to-door to tens of thousands of Utah homes to let Utah residents know what’s at stake.

Your donation today will help us win this fight to insure the wild lands you and I own as Americans, stay wild.

Thank you for all you do,
