DECEMBER 7 – TOM FOLKS – VISITATION MANAGEMENT AT COYOTE BUTTES (THE WAVE)
December 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MST
Before highways and railways, before pioneers…the land we know as the United States was truly a vast wilderness. To protect these last remaining areas, in 1984 Congress created the Paria Canyon – Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. Coyote Buttes’ outstanding scenery, desert wildlife, colorful history, and opportunities for primitive recreation will remain free from the influence of man and are protected in this condition for future generations. Its 112,500 acres beckon adventures who yearn for solitude, scenic splendor, and the chance to explore one of the most beautiful geologic formations in the world. Tom Folks is a former recreation planner with BLM, with extensive experience in managing this world-renowned area. He will be discussing the history of visitation management and what lies in store for future management of the area.
