Help us save the cradle of civilization in southeast Utah. Remnants of prehistory are vanishing, loss of 1000s of years of human knowledge.
Dear Friend of Cedar Mesa,
The important and gorgeous archaeological and scenic masterpiece of Cedar Mesa remains unprotected. You can help us save those invaluable remnants of pre-history in a big and specific way. Conservation Lands Foundation has given Friends of Cedar Mesa a $2,500 matching grant in support of National Conservation Lands. Your donation will be doubled by this unique opportunity to protect this precious resource. Please give $50, $100 or whatever amount is right for you today.
We have had a great year. We gathered a network of 600 friends and supporters and convened an active board of directors. We worked with a core of land management experts and archaeologists to put on the hugely popular and well-attended symposium, Celebrate Cedar Mesa, in Blanding, Utah this past November. By bringing people together, we can help the political process in untold ways. As we iron out our differences, a sold proposal to protect greater Cedar Mesa will emerge.
Friends of Cedar Mesa will amplify your voice and influence in the management process in Southeast Utah. We are the voice for those magical canyons, old growth pinion and juniper and undisturbed ruins. The incredible recreational opportunities such as hiking, camping and birding along with the scientific values so important to us all are why we were formed.
It has been one year since we officially started Friends of Cedar Mesa. Late last year the IRS approved our 501c3 non-profit status! We know that you will back us with your hard earned dollars, as we give voice and build our stake in future management. Please donate today and your donation will be doubled!
With your support, we will begin work on three specific projects:
1) Educate the service workers of San Juan County to better advise visitors on ways of low impact visitation of prehistoric sites
2) Help the BLM to fence off important cultural and recreational sites from the impacts of cattle grazing
3) Find solutions to the impacts of wood gathering and associated off-road travel that is scaring the land.
Today, I am asking you to help Friends of Cedar Mesa. You’ve seen what we’ve done. Now imagine what we can do with your financial assistance.
Please help us today with a gift of $50, $100 or whatever amount is right for you.
Thanks for the boost. We can’t become more effective without your help.
Friends of Cedar Mesa
