Carbon County Press Release
Carbon County Tourism has released a new Nine Mile Mobile App. With help from the 2018 Co Op Grant, the office made some changes to their current website and created a new offline mobile tour for visitors and community members.
Nine Mile has been the center of conversations for years with the BLM and the Nine Mile Coalition has been at the lead of those discussions. Although an interpretive panel project is planned for the canyon, the office of tourism knew the importance of having visitor information about the canyon available until the BLM decided what to do with the plan.
“Unfortunately, plans such as the Nine Mile Interpretive Plan is a process and it doesn’t always move as quickly as we’d like it too, but with that being said, I think the new mobile app will help direct visitors to the areas that have been designated to visit without the confusion they may have experienced before with inaccurate maps and brochures,” said Carbon County Tourism Specialist Tina Henrie. “We understand the significance of Nine Mile to our history and we are also sensitive to the fact that we need to protect it and respect it. I hope this mobile app will also help educate our visitors & community members to do just that.”
The community is invited to Nine Mile Canyon on Sept. 14 from 10 a.m to 6:30 p.m. Hosted by Project Discovery of Utah, their ultimate goal is “all about education. By pulling back the veil of secrecy and not only showing, but educating you about these precious and irreplaceable archaeological sites – we hope that you’ll walk away more enlightened, with a better understanding of why these sites are important, and why they should be protected and preserved for future generations.” There will be food, vendors and fun at the Nine Mile Ranch.
