Moab Steward Business Training

Responsible Recreation Training for Moab Businesses

Grand County Economic Development is partnering with local businesses to help educate visitors about responsible recreation practices in the Moab area. From our iconic national parks, Arches and Canyonlands, to the vast expanse of public lands that extends well beyond these borders, the Moab area stands as a testament to the magnificence of Nature’s Masterpiece. Our rugged landscapes are a true treasure, yet they also reveal a surprising vulnerability. Even unassuming desert potholes cradle a vibrant array of creatures, each as exceptional as the grand landscape that envelopes them. The living biocrust that delicately covers our desert terrain stands as a cornerstone of a thriving ecosystem, deserving of our utmost care.

At the heart of the Moab Steward Business Training Program lies a mission to educate front-facing personnel about responsible and respectful recreation practices, and to empower them to impart this wisdom to the public. The program’s unwavering dedication to safeguarding our environment resonates strongly. They firmly believe that every individual possesses the capacity to contribute to a sustainable future for our planet. In this rallying call, they extend an open invitation to all Moab businesses, urging them to unite in the shared endeavor of preserving these natural marvels for generations to come.
