America’s red rock wilderness draws pilgrims from around the world.  It is the largest network of undesignated wilderness lands remaining in the lower 48 states.

The program includes “Wild Utah”, a multi-media slideshow. This 15-minute journey through red rock splendor, narrated by Robert Redford invigorates and motivates viewers to participate in the movement to protect these unique and threatened public lands.

The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and its partners in the Utah Wilderness Coalition seek to gain local support for the “Citizens’ Proposal” to protect wilderness areas in Utah’s red rock canyonlands.  Comprehensive legislation is pending in Congress and administrative decisions by the White House and the Department of Interior are ongoing.

“These are spectacular public lands owned by all Americans.  As citizens we have a great opportunity to act to protect these special places,” Daughenbaugh said.

Daughenbaugh also serves as the volunteer Chair of the Sierra Club’s National Wildlands Committee.
