Join us to celebrate 30 years of protecting Utah’s redrock wilderness!

http://www.suwa.org/events/redrock-and-pearls/

-7:30 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Utah Museum of Natural History’s Canyon Atrium, 301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City.

Tickets are $50 per person (and include a complimentary one-year membership) or $25 per person for current SUWA members. Click here for tickets.

Back in 1983, The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) was founded around a kitchen table by a small group of people who loved Utah’s redrock wilderness and wanted to protect the best of it. They laid the foundation for an organization – a movement really – out of passion for one of the most amazing landscapes on earth.

Today, 30 years later, SUWA is stronger than ever – owing to the contributions of tens of thousands of people – who share a love for this remarkable landscape. Our goal is to permanently protect over 9 million acres of redrock wilderness, and with the help of many, we’ve managed to keep 99 percent of these lands safe.

In celebration of thirty years of success, we’re hosting a gala celebration at 7:30 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Utah Museum of Natural History’s Canyon Atrium. The theme of the night is Redrock and Pearls (as pearls are the symbol of a 30 year anniversary.)-

I'll be there, I hope some of you can make it as well. SUWA is a wonderful and very important organization.

1. Can't be there, but want to say that wemvisited Utah for almost a month this year and

It was simply one of the most beautiful and wonderful landscapes I've ever seen. I didn't expect to fall in love with the red rock, but I did and hope that I can come to hike there many more times. I can't even yet put into words how I felt out there.

It was a gift to see what I saw - had no idea it would be so cool! Will google SUWA to learn more but thank goodness some far seeing visionaries worked so hard to preserve such a magnificant part of America!

Thanks for the 30 years of work!! I know I'll be back someday and I will, once again, be saying my thanks with every blinks of my eyes.
