The purpose of the field trip is for informational exchange and input from the public, and to examine areas and resource issues regarding lands that could potentially be included in congressional legislation for federal land in Grand County, according to a news release.
The field trip is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., and will leave from the Grand County Courthouse, officials said.
Field trip participants should be prepared for approximately six to eight hours in the field, depending on number of participants and vehicles, according to the news release. The trip will be approximately a 100-mile round trip from Moab and will require high clearance four-wheel drive vehicles. Participants should bring their own vehicles, food, fuel, and water.
County officials encourage those participating to arrange carpooling prior to arriving at the courthouse, and “would anticipate additional efforts to carpool at the courthouse to minimize vehicles,” according to the news release. Participants are asked to dress for warm weather with minimal shade.
