FILM: Protect Bears Ears, Utah

get more from BRO

Josh Ewing began visiting the Bears Ears region of southeastern Utah to climb at Indian Creek and explore the local archaeology. But when he gave up a 6-figure salary in advertizing to move to the town of Bluff, he saw degradation from oil drilling, looting, and careless visitors. Ewing knew simply loving a place was no longer enough. “If I’m going to be working my ass off, I want to be working my ass off for something I really care about.” He was asked to head up the organization “Friends of Cedar Mesa” and is working to protect it.  #ProtectBearsEars
