WHAT WE STAND FOR
Take Back Utah protects access to our public lands and defends the freedom of all American’s to explore and experience America’s Wild Places, while preserving America’s small town economies and rural lifestyles through responsible land use.
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
1. We are focused on enacting public policy change at the federal government level to protect access to our public lands for all.
2. We serve as an inclusive and unifying voice to diverse groups of American's who want to access and experience America's Wild Places for themselves, regardless of age, ability or other factors that may be limiting.
3. We are a loud voice of truth about public land access issues – we speak with veracity to educate our fellow citizens and government officials about how today's "Wilderness" policies exclude most American's from having the ability to personally experience America's most wild places, as well as how these policies weaken the ability of America's small towns to survive.
We need people to help with our cause. If you would like to volunteer your talents to help save Utah, please send us an email and we will contact you as soon as we can.

- On August 30, 2010, in a Kane County quiet title suit in the United States District Court, the United States acknowledged Kane County's ownership and jurisdiction of approximately 26 miles of the 33 mile long Skutumpah road. The County will start signing, maintaining and repairing the road today.
