BLACK BOULDER MESA OPEN SPACE

Protected in 1998

Acreage: 167

Location: Garfield County, UT

At the close of 1998, Utah Open Lands accepted a conservation easement protecting 167 acres of characteristic desert lands located in Boulder near the National Monument and the Dixie National Forest. Many more landowners in the area are lined up ready to protect their lands from the tremendous development pressures facing this region of the state. Utah Open Lands is in tentative negotiations for the preservation of many key parcels.
