In the 80s …

Rock Canyon was saved from being used as a SERVICE ROAD for a pro­posed ski resort.

In the 90s …

The entrance of Rock Canyon was saved from a CONDO DEVELOPMENT.

Now …

Rock Canyon is being threat­ened by a pro­posed ROCK QUARRY which would destroy the cliffs at the mouth of the canyon.

Rock Canyon Preser­va­tion Alliance


The Rock Canyon Preser­va­tion Alliance is a cit­i­zen group ded­i­cated to pre­serv­ing Rock Canyon, adja­cent to Provo, Utah, for present and future generations.

We advo­cate pro­tec­tion of the mouth of the canyon, the canyon itself, and areas above and behind the canyon.

We actively sup­port healthy coop­er­a­tion between Provo City, Utah County, the State of Utah, the U.S. For­est Ser­vice, our Alliance, cit­i­zens, and any other par­ties with respon­si­bil­ity for the land and ecosys­tems con­nected to Rock Canyon, guided by a deter­mi­na­tion to main­tain the high­est lev­els of eco­log­i­cal health for the water­shed, and for the canyon’s bio­di­ver­sity, geo­log­i­cal fea­tures, and beauty.

We sup­port preser­va­tion of Rock Canyon for per­sonal, recre­ational, and edu­ca­tional activ­i­ties that do not cause harm to the envi­ron­men­tal well-being of the canyon or to its use as a water source for the City of Provo.  We oppose any activ­ity that would endan­ger human life, or would com­pro­mise its eco­log­i­cal health or beauty.  We believe the canyon should remain free of any com­mer­cial devel­op­ments, and that all uses should be pro­moted by and for the pub­lic, with­out finan­cial charges.


Rock Canyon Preser­va­tion Alliance is com­mit­ted to

tak­ing action that sup­ports the stated prin­ci­ples of our Manifesto.
