Our Canyon Lands

In Southeastern Utah, one of the last major wild places remaining in the lower 48 sits teetering on a precipice of rampant industrial development. Home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the world, the Canyon Lands of Utah have become the playground of adventurous souls who love and appreciate the wonder of wild places. It has also become the target of greedy industrialists, who threaten to turn our treasured parks into islands, our canyons into roaring hydrocarbon highways and our rivers into endangered arteries among vast swaths of oil and gas development, uranium and potash mining bordering Canyonlands National Park.

Director: Justin Clifton

Justin Clifton is a native of the American Southwest, who has dedicated the past decade of his career to advocacy film, first as Director of Telluride Mountainfilm on Tour and now as a filmmaker who’s work is centered around environmental and conservation issues. In the past year he has produced and directed three films centered around the protection of landscapes in Southeastern Utah as part of the Our Canyon Lands campaign for land conservation. He is currently working on two new projects - one is centered around river restoration and water conservation in California’s Central Valley and the other deals with the issues surrounding America’s last remaining Uranium Mill and its detrimental impact on the White Mesa Ute tribal community south of Blanding, Utah.
