Spend Easter Weekend Volunteering with the Price Field Office

Did you know that you can help monitor and protect your favorite trails in the Price Field Office just by spending time there?  The BLM is seeking volunteers to monitor trails, count visitor numbers, and hand out maps and garbage bags to other visitors while reminding them to recreate responsibly. 

In addition to Easter weekend, the BLM Price Field Office has volunteer opportunities nearly every weekend in the spring and fall.  We thank the many volunteers that have lent a hand in trail building and site stabilization projects.

For additional information about Price Field Office volunteer opportunities, please contact Jaydon Mead at (435)636-3646. 

Learn more about Easter Weekend volunteer opportunities and good stewardship practices.

San Rafael River Canyon
"The Wedge Overlook"
San Rafael River Canyon with Windowblind Butte in the distance


The Price Field Office is located in the midsection of Utah--the gateway to the red-rock country of the San Rafael Swell. The swell as been described as the jagged remains of a dinosaur backbone, an exposed sandstone coral reef, and a stone saw blade.

No matter how you describe this place, it is a desolate but fascinating country. Traveling east, you’ll find the Green River, a premiere river trip in Utah’s deepest canyon that runs through Desolation and Gray Canyons.

Nine-Mile Canyon just west of the Green River is a major representative area of the prehistoric Fremont Culture where one can see panels of rock art and, if you look closely, some well-hidden storage bins.
