TRIP OVERVIEW:

Join the Conservation Lands Foundation as we explore the desert bluffs, slot canyons, archaeology and cultural connections of southern Utah's Bears Ears National Monument. At the center of the current Administration's attack on America's public lands, this is a rare opportunity to meet groups on the ground, talk to grassroots advocates and get an inside look at what we're fighting to protect in this iconic national monument.

Bears Ears National Monument draws people from around the world to experience the highest density of Ancestral Puebloan cliff ruins and rock art in the nation. This is one of the most incredible natural settings in the West with miles of spectacular canyons lined with cliffs cut across the mesa. Some ruins are perched high on ledges and under overhangs.

This region is sacred to many Native American tribes, including the Navajo, Hopi, Ute, Pueblo, Hualapai and Apache peoples, who trace their ancestry to those who built the dwellings and created the rock art that still grace these lands. Together, we will strike out on day-long adventures with local guides who will lead us in exploring the dramatic scenery, unique wildlife and irreplaceable cultural sites that fill the Bears Ears cultural landscape.
