Utah Wilderness Association.

The Utah Wilderness Association (UWA) was formed in response to concerns that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Forest Services were not advocating for new wilderness areas in Utah. In 1979, Dick Carter and others joined together to officially form the UWA and with the help of their efforts, a Utah Wilderness Act was made into law in 1984. The UWA continued their activities and after the act twelve areas were designated as Utah National Forest wildernesses.

The UWA remained active throughout the 1980s with issues such as bear baiting and oil drilling around Utah. By the late 1990s, however, key members such as Dick Carter left the organization and without proper funds the UWA became inactive in 1996.
