The Greater Canyonlands Coalition represents a diverse set of conservation, recreation, historical, cultural, and business interests, all crucial to the permanent protection of this unique and critical region.
The community of support for a Greater Canyonlands National Monument includes regional groups such as the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, the Grand Canyon Trust, and Californians for Western Wilderness; national organizations such as The Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Great Old Broads for Wilderness; and numerous outdoor industry businesses, such as Black Diamond, Patagonia, Teva, and more.
Student groups, faith communities, artists/photographers, health professionals, cultural resource experts, elected officials in the region, and citizens from Utah and around the country have also demonstrated their support for the protection of the heart of red rock country in southern Utah. In addition, a joint resolution was introduced in the Utah House and Senate in February 2013 calling on Congress and the President to act to protect the Greater Canyonlands region.
Together, these businesses, organizations, and individuals are calling for the protection of this remarkable watershed, with its complex of canyons, mesas, mountains, and basins, of natural bridges, arches, and spires in perpetuity.
