Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 11th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government.

Have you ever visited the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument?

If you haven’t it is an incredible place that should be added to your bucket list.

We visited the area as part of a field trip with the BLM and a number of stakeholders as they discussed re-vegetation projects that have been done to help promote a healthy landscape. Our story this week will cover that field trip and share some of the reasoning behind why the BLM participates in re-vegetation projects.

What grows on the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument will have an impact on the planning efforts that will impact the future of ranching in the area.

These impacts are more far reaching than livestock grazing in the area. Tune in as we discuss the importance of active land management in keeping the land healthy and productive. You will never look at a Pinyon Juniper tree the same after this program. The County Seat, Sunday Morning at 8:30am on ABC 4 UTAH.
