Bears Ears Partnership (formerly Friends of Cedar Mesa) is committed to building common ground with local communities, Tribes, Pueblos, and people of the greater Bears Ears region. Our impact is greater when we bring together people from different perspectives focused on the common goal of protecting the region’s natural and cultural resources. We support Indigenous leadership in the management and conservation of the greater Bears Ears region.

Bears Ears Partnership respectfully acknowledges that our work is carried out on traditional lands taken from the Hopi, Diné/Navajo, Zuni, Ute, and other Tribes and Pueblos. We aspire to honor and learn from the long cultural history of stewardship and connection to these sacred lands.
