Bears Ears encompasses a stunning landscape in southeastern Utah, bordering both Dark Canyon Wilderness and Canyonlands National Park. Recently, a coalition of several Indian tribes—called the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition—was formed to help negotiate a long-term conservation plan for the area. Utah’s congressional representatives are attempting to put together their own proposal as President Obama considers designated Bears Ears as a national monument. A recent visit by the Secretary of the Interior underscores the high-profile nature of the issue.
