– Scott Abbott, Ph.D

“I see firsthand the value it provides to the community, its residents, and visitors from all corners of the world. Entrada contributes to increasing our appreciation of the natural world and its inhabitants. It also provides a fascinating slate of programs and classes that are open to all. Entrada adds immeasurably to the fabric of this area and deserves our support.”

– Annie Holt, co-owner of The Old House at Center and Main in Torrey

“There are cliff and buttes, mountains and mesas, canyons and valleys, domes and pinnacles, rounded slopes and numberless smaller forms, all painted in a rainbow spectrum of glorious hues, sculptured into … patterns that astonish with strange and endless diversity.”

– Ward Roylance, co-founder, Entrada Institute

“What impressed me about Entrada was honoring and celebrating both our natural and cultural legacies at the local level and along the Colorado Plateau. The Entrada Institute helps protect and preserve the heritage of Wayne County, State of Utah, and Colorado Plateau. Entrada, you are the role model for the future.”

– Rosemary Sucec, Cultural Anthropologist, National Park Service
