    BLM UT State Director Participates in Public Land Education Day

    Juan Palma, UT BLM State Director, recently welcomed Highland High to BLM’s Color Country District for their annual Public Land Education Day, which has immensely increased in popularity, and has almost doubled in size since its inception in the spring of 2011. Juan was joined by some resource specialists from the Color Country District and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in sharing the Bureau’s story.  
     
    Students and instructors explored the rugged southern Utah landscape for three days prior to meeting with BLM’s resource specialists and hearing about the multiple-use mandate. Students also went on a field tour of Muddy Creek, a 1,000 acre watershed restoration project located west of Kanab, UT. BLM staff talked about the implementation of the National Fire Plan and reasons and benefits for treating landscape in Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas, including creating enhanced fire protection for communities and wildlife habitat and reducing soil erosion, while increasing water quality and quantity in critical soil loss areas.Visiting this site allowed students to visually experience the lessons taught during the lecture sessions.
     
    Students from Highland High will be academically tested on the information they learned from this event and will be given an opportunity to follow up on any questions that they may have for program specialists in the District.
