BLM Utah manages archaeological and historic sites, artifact collections, places of traditional cultural importance to Native Americans and other communities, and paleontological resources that occur on federal lands in the state of Utah. Collectively, these heritage resources represent thousands of years of human occupation, and millions of years of the earths natural history. BLM Cultural Heritage and Paleontology Programs coordinate management, preservation, education and outreach efforts, economic opportunities, and public uses of a fragile, nonrenewable scientific record that represents an important component of Americas heritage. The BLM Utah Cultural Heritage and Paleontology Resource Management Programs seek to establish partnerships that collaboratively encourage the public to learn about and engage with heritage resources in Utah, with the goals of building a meaningful conservation stewardship legacy through expanding public access for recreation opportunities on public lands, working to ensure meaningful consultation and self-determination for Tribes, enhancing visitor experience on public lands by better meeting our infrastructure and maintenance needs, and eliminating unnecessary steps and duplicative reviews while maintaining rigorous environmental standards. The Cultural Heritage and Paleontology Resource Management Programs achieve these goals by: Protecting and preserving cultural heritage and paleontological resources for the benefit of future generations; Improving professional and/or public understanding of the nations cultural and natural history; Providing educational, recreational, and economic opportunities for local communities and the public; Increasing Native American access to locations and natural resources important to traditional cultural practices and beliefs; and Managing heritage resource collections and associated records to appropriate standards, and providing access to the public and Native Americans.
