What kind of public land? Across the U.S., you’ll find National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, National Seashores, National Recreation Areas, and Wildernesses..It may all seem the same, but the type of public land designation can make a big difference on the level of protection the land receives. The San Rafael Swell, the location of Fall Break’s Identity and Environmental Exploration Trip, was expanded in March as a Wilderness area. This protects these gorgeous wildlands from overdevelopment, industrial use, and off road vehicles. Let’s keep them that way #wilderness #redrocks #southernutah #protectwildutah #uofualtbreaks #bennioncenter #alternativebreaks
