Friends of Cedar Mesa relies on volunteers to help safeguard the amazing archaeology and beautiful landscapes of the Greater Cedar Mesa Area. Please join us to stay informed and help when you can.
National Monument/Conservation Area Proposal
Proposed boundaries and size
Cottonwood Wash on the east, Clay Hills cliffs on the west, Elk Ridge escarpment on the north, and San Juan River on the south. Total area encompassed, approximately 600,000 acres.
Why Cedar Mesa qualifies for a special designation
The area enclosed by the above boundaries has many, many outstanding examples of Ancestral Pueblo rock art and cliff dwellings that are nationally and even internationally recognized in books, articles, and on the internet. Sites and rock art of later Ute and Navajo cultures are also present. The Hole-in-the-Rock trail, over which Mormon settlers traveled to found the community of Bluff, passes through the center of the area and is a venerated historic site.
