We need your stories! What do you love about Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument? Why do you think it should remain protected as it was designated 21 years ago?
We’re looking for folks to submit a photo and written or voice-recorded text to firstname.lastname@example.org. *If you’re unable to record the text yourself, please let us know if we may do so on your behalf. *

We recommend stopping by one of the BLM Visitor Centers before traveling out onto Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. You can find information about them here. There are also many local Outfitters and Guides that can provide gear and exceptional experiences for you and your family:
When you’re in the Escalante/Boulder, area don’t miss a visit to award winning Hell’s Backbone Grill & Farm
If you’ve ever wanted to work with dinosaur bones and help “bring them back to life,” here’s your chance! The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Paleontology lab uses volunteers to help with preparing specimens found in the fossil-rich badlands of the Kairparowits over the last ten years. Those with a steady hand and the patience of Job are encouraged to apply for this exacting (but rewarding) work.
Partners has also designed and is coordinating a Site Steward program on Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument that assists agency scientists with monitoring of the many archeological, paleontological, and historical sites for damage. Volunteers are trained and then assigned sites where they regularly check for changes in the site’s condition caused by natural erosion, animal activity, looting, vandalism, or other inadvertent activities, and findings are submitted to the appropriate agency manager.
If you think you might like to be involved in these or other science-based projects, call Partners at 435-644-2724 to learn more about volunteering.
