Red Wash Stewardship Project

October 20 - October 21

The Land

Labyrinth Canyon – a meandering stretch of the Green River carrying the river to its confluence with the mighty Colorado – received wild and scenic protections in 2019 as part of the Dingell Act, or Emery County Lands Bill. However, due to the fact of the river’s being divided midstream between Emery and Grand counties, the latter (eastern) territory remains without significant protection. Grand County’s growing recreation economy – in particular motorized use – jeopardizes the ecological integrity of its wild and scenic character. Join our crew as we work toward better management of the many side canyons and drainages feeding into Labyrinth Canyon.


The Work

We will tackle travel management issues in and near Red Wash. The full scope and project details will be shared with applicants.


Our Objective: To reinforce travel management strategies preventing nonpermitted motorized travel along the eastern stretches of Labyrinth Canyon and its drainages.


Itinerary
A comprehensive itinerary will be provided to registered volunteers.

  • Thursday, October 20th: Day 1/Orientation
  • Friday, October 21st: Day 2/Completion
