August 21, 22, 23, 2009 - Cedar Breaks National Monument 76th Anniversary Celebration

Come join Park Rangers, volunteers and special guests as we celebrate the 76th anniversary of Cedar Breaks National Monument. Events include special guests and programs that highlight the Monument’s history, magnificent scenery, natural resources and wildlife.

On Saturday August 22, Martin Tyner, founder of the Southwest Wildlife Foundation, will give an informal wildlife program accompanied by his Golden Eagle, Prairie Falcon, and Harris Hawk. If you ever wanted to get up close to some of the world’s most powerful birds to learn their life history from Utah’s best loved environmental educator, this is an opportunity that should not be missed.

Other park events throughout the month of August will focus on telling about pre-Monument history, the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Cedar Breaks Lodge, and share stories about what it was like to work for the Utah Parks Company.
