America's Heritage Resources
BLM identifies and manages a wide variety of cultural resources on Utah’s public lands. The BLM conserves and protects scientific archaeological sites that chronicle the thousands of years of human-initiated land use in Utah.
Many historic and prehistoric interpretative sites are open to visitors. BLM strives to protect and preserve representative samples of the array of cultural resources on public lands for the benefit of present and future generations.

America's Fossil Resources
More kinds of fossils can be found on the BLM-managed public lands than under any other Federal or State agency's control, and all Americans share in this unique natural legacy. Fossils are the remains and traces of once-living organisms, preserved in rocks of the Earth's crust. They convey the story of origins and endings of extraordinary varieties of ocean-dwelling, fresh-water, and terrestrial creatures, played out over nearly 4 billion years of the Earth's 4.6 billion-year history.
