Conservation



Eric Sadler
Conservation Director

The WMC is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the wild and natural qualities of the State of Utah. The goal is to continuously improve the quality of the outdoor experience for its members through preservation of wild lands and to preserve access to these lands.

In the 1960s the club became increasingly concerned with wilderness conservation. Since then the club members have made extensive studies and participated in lobbying efforts aimed at preserving the Wasatch and Uintah Ranges and many areas of Southern Utah and neighboring states. These efforts have been gratified by the designation of the Lone Peak Wilderness Area in the 1970s and eight other wilderness areas in Utah in 1984.

May 1, 2012 - Cardiff Fork is now open for public use on the old route. An agreement has been struck between the Forest Service and the Cardiff Canyon Owners Association that allows the public to cross private lands, and the land owners to have a simpler process to get a special use permit to use the route on public land. Owners are allowed motorized access to their inholdings but are restricted to private lands. The public will have to stay on the old route.
