About Grand Staircase Escalante Partners
Grand Staircase Escalante Partners (GSEP) is the nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. This 1.88 million-acre national monument in Southern Utah is home to incredible biodiversity, important cultural and historical resources, and countless opportunities for scientific research. Due to the geographic remoteness and rugged character of this landscape, this region was the last area to be mapped in the contiguous United States and remains a frontier for exploration and discovery. The mission of Grand Staircase Escalante Partners is to honor the past and safeguard the future of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument through science, conservation, and education. We advocate for the strongest possible conservation management of the Monument.
