Back in December 2017, we gave $100,000 to Friends of Cedar Mesa, to help build a “Visit with Respect” Education Center outside Bears Ears in Bluff, Utah. It will provide educational resources – from maps and guides to knowledgeable staff – to educate and serve the thousands of visitors exploring the Bears Ears region.
Bears Ears was originally named a national monument in 2016 to protect public land enjoyed by thousands of Americans for outdoor recreation. It’s also the home to five Native American tribe’s sacred lands and rich, cultural history, including more than 100,000 artifacts. The Bears Ears story is ongoing.
