Don't let the Comb Ridge be privatized!

The Comb Ridge is an internationally known geologic formation in southeastern Utah. Filled with historic and prehistoric archaeological sites, the Comb is treasured by locals and visitors from around the world.

If made private, access to this key "trailhead to the Comb" could be lost forever.

Instead of auctioning off this land in a traditional auction, the interested buyer, the Hole-in-the-Rock Foundation could negotiate a conservation easement on this land. This would help preserve the land, allow the Foundation to carry out educational activities about the heroic Hole-in-the-Rock Expedition and allow for continued public use of this section of the Comb.

Politely ask the Hole-in-the-Rock Foundation to consider a conservation easement on Comb Ridge

The Hole-in-the-Rock Foundation has asked SITLA to auction off a square-mile section of the Comb Ridge. Despite efforts by Friends of Cedar Mesa to find a win-win solution for all users of the Comb Ridge, the Foundation has so far rejected a conservation easement on the parcel.

Help us convince the Hole-in-the-Rock Foundation to consider a conservation easement that would preserve public access on this parcel of the Comb Ridge.
