BLM on the move
The Bureau of Land Management’s administrative offices for Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (GSENM) and the Kanab Field Office have moved. The offices have been consolidated at 669 South Highway 89A, Kanab, Utah, 84741. This is also the new mailing address.
A central reception phone number has been established to help guide the public to the right office. That telephone number is 435-644-1200. The new fax number is 435-644-1305.
The GSENM Visitor Center at 745 E. Highway 89 also got an upgraded telephone system, which required new numbers. The old number, 435-644-4680 has been changed to 435-644-1300/1301. The lottery to get permits for the Wave will continue to be conducted out of this visitor center.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and an open house is scheduled for Friday, February 10, from 3 to 7 p.m. The ceremony will start promptly at 3 p.m., followed by the open house. The public is invited to attend both the ribbon-cutting and the open house.
