Utah's five national parks and seven national monuments define the beauty and grandeur of the state. Tourists flock here each year to experience these wonderful places, relishing the desert beauty.

Few people know that privately held land still exists within all these parks, threatening their overall integrity if developed. TPL is determined to fully protect these national treasures by transferring the inholdings and buffer areas around the parks and monuments into public ownership, ensuring their unspoiled beauty can be enjoyed for generations to come.
