Who We Are

The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) is a group of concerned citizens who share the common goal of preserving Utah's remaining desert wild lands, known collectively as America's redrock wilderness. 

Since 1983, SUWA has been the only independent organization working full-time to defend America's redrock wilderness from oil and gas development, unnecessary road construction, rampant off-road vehicle use, and other threats to Utah's wilderness-quality lands. We are a qualified non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the federal tax code.
