Federal Designation

The Central Wasatch National Conservation and Recreation Area will conserve a landscape depended upon by over 1,800 species of plants and animals. Leaving a legacy for future generations, both local and visitor alike, who see the Central Wasatch as a critical part of what it means to support public lands.

The final Mountain Accord report was an unprecedented collaboration of public and private interests established to preserve the legacy of the Central Wasatch Mountains and to agree on an integrated, comprehensive, landscape-scale framework for current and future decision.

We are aiming to protect 80,000 acres of public land through the designation of the “Central Wasatch National Conservation & Recreation Area.” Once passed, this legislation will connect fragmented land with areas currently under federal protection, designate additional wilderness areas, and limit future development in the Wasatch, all while protecting our shared values of natural places.
