Visit Your Public Lands!

By Rich Csenge, Founding Director, Southern Utah’s Amazing Earthfest


On Mother’s Day, May 14, in Kanab, Utah, Amazing Earthfest kicks off its second decade serving residents and visitors to southern Utah, proudly affirming the myriad values of America’s public lands and honoring our Mother Earth. There may be no more important moment in history than right now to cultivate and express a culture of caring for our precious “natural heritage”, and all the creatures that live there. Come and join the fun!

A widely shared vision among people who care about the natural beauty and the human history of the Colorado Plateau is growing rapidly among travelers touched by the plateau’s magic. The festival will feature more than 30 events to educate, stimulate and fascinate lovers of the natural world! This year’s theme is, “Preserving Dark Skies over the Colorado Plateau”.

Southern Utah’s Amazing Earthfest offers seven days of free learning, discovery, arts and adventure activities that inspire and inform Americans from around the nation to explore, appreciate and celebrate their National and State Parks, National Forests, National Monuments and BLM lands. Don’t miss the 11th annual festival, May 14-20, 2017.

Precious landscapes belonging to all Americans managed by the National Park Service, U. S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, enrich the rural economy and community vitality of towns across the American West. They preserve our ancient cultural sites, natural values of habitat and species diversity, and provide fantastic recreational opportunities for hiking, biking, birding, astronomy and exploration of nature’s beauty and majesty. Continuing scientific discoveries in botany, wildlife, geology, paleontology, ecology, climate change and other important fields of research all happen out there!

Amazing Earthfest celebrates the quality of life in small, authentic pioneer communities like Kanab and Escalante, Utah, enriched by the National and State Parks, Forests, Monuments and Districts of BLM land that surround them. Wild landscapes adjacent to gateway communities throughout the rural West are fueling the expanding “new west economy”, attracting people who cherish protected public lands to visit, relocate, discover and enjoy them.

Plan your visit to Kanab, Utah, for a memorable experiential learning opportunity for you, your friends and family. Get details on scheduled activities of the 11th Amazing Earthfest by visiting our Events page. Celebrate Utah’s National Monuments at the 2017 Amazing Earthfest!
