This month's photo of the month is of Fisher Towers above Fisher Valley Century Ranch. The photo was taken during a flight with conservation partner Utah Open Lands, a statewide land trust whose mission is to preserve, protect and steward open space in order to maintain Utah's natural heritage and quality of life for present and future generations. UOL has protected and now is in charge of preserving over 64,000 acres throughout the state of Utah. As an accredited land trust, UOL is responsible for monitoring each of the properties they have conserved on an annual basis. The purpose of this flight was to allow UOL volunteers to monitor one of these large properties consisting of six parcels along the Colorado River east of Moab, Utah. Imagery captured during this flight will also allow UOL stewardship staff to
make management decisions, create management plans for the property, and further their mission to protect the lands that we all love in an effective way.
