Utah Environmental Congress
Utah Environmental Congress (UEC) serves as a watchdog environmental group for all of the National Forests in Utah. UEC monitors logging, drilling, mining, and grazing projects to make sure they comply with environmental laws and regulations. It has identified over half of the National Forest land in Utah as having wilderness qualities and protects those areas from industrial activities so they can be added to the National Wilderness Preservation System. UEC protects imperiled species in Utah and campaigns to have wolves restored to their native Utah.
Reclaiming and acting upon our ancestral responsibility to the land, the Utah Environmental Congress brings people together to engage in genuine protection of living forest systems that provide islands of refuge in Utah’s desert country.
