Our themes for the 12th annual Amazing Earthfest 2018: TO COMMEMORATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARIES OF THE NATIONAL HISTORIC AND SCENIC TRAILS, AND THE WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS ACTS, AND TO PRESERVE STARRY SKIES OVER THE COLORADO PLATEAU. Look for activities focused on historic & scenic trails and majestic rivers, plus night sky events including talks, constellation viewing, stories and sidewalk astronomy. 

Did you know? Utah has approximately 81,899 miles of river, of which only 169.3 miles are designated as wild & scenic—2/10ths of 1% of the state’s river miles! And Utah has some of the darkest nighttime skies anywhere in the lower 48 states!  Several important National Historic Trails cross Utah, including the Old Spanish Trail, California Trail, Mormon Trail and Pony Express Trail. The northern terminus of the Arizona Trail touches Utah very close to Kanab.  Torrey, Utah became the state’s first International Dark Sky City and we hope many more will follow. Fourteen Utah State Parks have applied for Dark Sky Park designation and several National Parks and Monuments in Utah have already been awarded that status.  The moon, stars, Milky Way, planets and constellations above Utah are dazzling, like lanterns in the clear blackness.
