About Us

Utah is a destination spot for those who want to explore the raw, untouched lands of America. Adventurers seek out Utah to experience the awe of the land by exploring its northern snow-capped mountains or the river-carved canyons of the south. That is until you arrive at your destination and see a scene of overuse, abuse and crowds. In this series, we explore the harm our Utah lands face with the constant "love" we give.

Support for Loving Our Lands To Death is made possible in part by the USU Quinney College of Natural Resources, where students and faculty promote the sustainability of ecosystems and the communities that depend on them.
