Patagonia has a long and proven history of investing in the defense of America’s natural wonders.

This is Bears Ears is a beautiful site, devoted to raising awareness to the active threat to Bears Ears National Monument. This monument protects 1,351,849 acres of public land, and is remarkable in its scope of natural beauty, cultural history, and richness of natural resources.

Located in southeastern Utah, it’s the home of over 100,000 archaeological sites. This is the area where the Clovis people, thought to be the ancestors of most of the indigenous cultures of the Americas, resided around 13,000 years ago.

The site is beautiful, but I’m sure it pales in comparison to the wonder of the real thing. If you value our national parks, visit this site and make your voice heard.
