SUWA releases list of "Utah's Ten Most Threatened Wilderness Treasures"
"We agree with SUWA that the BLM, now under
the authority of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, should undertake more
thorough assessments of the regions addressed in the plans. If that
requires further public comment and hearings, so be it. These historical
treasures deserve protection.
SUWA points to 10 areas most in need of
designation as wilderness study areas: Cedar Mesa-Comb Ridge, Vermilion
Cliffs-Upper Kanab Creek, Moquith Mountain, Dirty Devil Country, Glen
Canyon-San Juan River, the Canyonlands basin and rims east of
Canyonlands National Park, Labyrinth Canyon, Upper Desolation Canyon,
Factory Butte and Price River-Long Spring Wash." Read more at The Salt Lake Tribune.
