Mark your calendars for April 25, 2014 from 3-7 p.m. and meet Brad Petersen, Utah’s first Director of Outdoor Recreation, as he kicks-off the event at Confluence Park in LaVerkin, Utah. Prepare for your next outdoor adventure with complimentary wilderness workshops and interactive booths supported by businesses and organizations from surrounding communities. Learn from experts about animal tracking, canyoneering, photography, and survival skills. Enjoy local live music and bring the kids for a chance to earn a 50th anniversary limited edition Wilderness Explorer Junior Ranger badge.
The benefits of wilderness are well known. Wild places give us pristine areas to travel and camp, hike and fish. The BLM and its partners recognizes that Utah's wilderness lands provide these benefits as well as a huge variety of other uses and values—from non-motorized and non-mechanized recreation, to critical wildlife habitat, clean water and air, and unmatched opportunities for solitude.
