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 ...

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. 

Tell the Hole-in-the-Rock Foundation to consider a conservation easement!

Ask Director David Ure not to sell the Comb Ridge!

David Ure is the Director of the Utah State Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA). He has the authority to determine that selling this parcel is not in the best interest of the State or the school children of Utah. 

Please tell Mr. Ure a personal story and make your case as to why this land should not be privatized.

Please be curteous and tell a personal story. Also help make the point that this area is proposed for protection and trading it for land elsewhere will return higher economic value to the school children of Utah.
