Saving Our Sacred Places: Protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Bear’s Ears National Monument

We care deeply about the places we send you on your adventures. We love them and are deeply committed to their protection. These are truly important places that we want you to be able to experience and explore.

The current administration is not backing off from threatening our public lands, many of which are locations we offer adventures to. The most recent issue is the underhanded way in which the government is attempting to open up Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) for oil exploration. One of the most exquisite trips we offer, the Kongakut River, lies in the heart of the ANWR.

Another recent concern is that a vast majority of the Bears Ears National Monument is slated to be cut out. Cataract Canyon and the San Juan River will be adversely affected. These locations are just the tip of the iceberg.

We want to bring awareness to these issues by providing you with a conduit to learn and to ultimately have your say.
