Cathedral Valley – FULL

April 30 - May 1

The Land

South of the San Rafael Reef reside a conglomerate of magnificent landscapes cut by rivers and split by deep networks of canyons. From the Dirty Devil to the Henry Mountains to Factory Butte, these lands feature a diverse array of  wilderness-quality lands as yet undesignated. More sparsely inhabited than many other southern Utah recreation destinations, small towns sit at a crossroads of travel, often leading select sites to endure high impact visitation.

The Work

Our crew will travel far and wide assessing off-road vehicle travel and camping compliance at a series of sites, remediating where appropriate. We will install needed signage and managing off-road vehicle travel. Work tasks will vary by need, and are slated to include: assembling (with hardware) posts and signs; hoisting and leveling mid-weight to heavy materials; the use of manual tools such as rakes, picks and shovels; team-moving of boulders and other large natural debris.

Volunteers Needed: (8)
Project Lead: Talitha McGuire
