Environmental Education in Utah
The BLM strives to realize healthier and more productive public lands through better informed citizens and well trained employees who are willing to participate and assist in managing the BLM administered public lands and solving complex environmental problems found in this 261 million-acre laboratory.
Providing the resources to learn about resource management has many advantages. By becoming familiar with the concepts and principles of managing within nature's limits, students learn to become innovators and problem solvers, and to make sound decisions. Studying resource management also encourages students to think about their environment holistically and to see connections between parts, both in the natural world and in other intellectual pursuits.

A great way to learn about geology on public lands is through BLM’s Junior Explorer program, which helps introduce young explorers to the lands and resources that the BLM manages. The latest publication, Geology and Fossils, focuses on geologic and fossil resources on public lands. Students can work through the activities on their own or invite a parent or an adult to join. The guide includes the Junior Explorer pledge, a certificate, and additional information about protecting the treasures on public lands.
