Ten Mile Canyon Area
On Sunday, May 21st, join SUWA and the Moab BLM for a volunteer opportunity in the canyon country of southern Utah. We are collaborating with the Outdoor Recreation Planner and additional staff to re-enforce protections for local ecologies in a side canyon above Ten Mile Canyon.
We will be bolstering and building fence line at two boundary points along a closed route in order to improve the big horn sheep habitat and a unique riparian ecology. Through these and more subtle landscape techniques, we aim to ensure that boundaries are clear and sufficient to provide guidance to travelers and to protect nearby resources.
Dinner & Camping
In addition to our work, volunteers are encouraged to camp the night of the event. An evening hike down the canyon will be followed by a potluck dinner for all who choose to stay.
This is an all levels work event in a beautiful, remote region of southern Utah. If you are interested and able to attend, please contact Jeremy Lynch to learn more about the project:
