Utah State Legislature

Pando Aspen Grove is 106 acres on the southwest bank of Fish Lake in Sevier County, Utah. A single root system unites this forest and it is the "single most massive living organism known on earth." It is under dire threat and faces extinction for many reasons. We call on our State Legislature to take action now in order to preserve a Utah treasure and natural resource. We believe that the time is now to preserve Pando. We ask that you sign this petition and share it with everyone you know to help educate them on what will be lost if Pando does not survive. We believe that the Utah Legislature and Governor are equipped to protect this tree if they act now. We call on them to take the necessary actions in consultation with forestry and wildlife experts including the United States Forest Service.
