The Land

The 1.7 million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is an extraordinary landscape. The monument is world renowned for its remarkable paleontological discoveries, stunning scenery, and outstanding recreational opportunities. Local communities have benefited with significant increases in tourism, new businesses, population growth, and higher per capita income.

Since its designation in 1996, Grand Staircase-Escalante has come to be known as the “Science Monument”—yielding several new species of dinosaur and other paleontological finds and providing habitat for 650 bee species, many that are endemic to the area. The area has incredible camping, hiking and other recreational opportunities. Places like Calf Creek, Peekaboo and Spooky Canyon, Coyote Gulch, and the Hole-in-the-Rock Road are well-known.

The Work

Our work will focus on travel management and camping compliance. We will address any signs of camping impacts to natural resources. Tasks may include: track raking, rock and natural materials conveyance, vertical mulching, sifting and cleaning nonpermitted campsites sign installation, and additional restoration strategies. All tools will be provided, including gloves.
