Washington County is home to an exquisite plant that exists nowhere else on Earth—the dwarf bear poppy. Unfortunately, this unique piece of Utah’s natural heritage is facing a number of challenges.
Human impacts, including development and off-road vehicle use, continue to destroy the poppies and their habitat and impair key plant life-cycle processes, such as pollination visits.
Listed as a federally endangered species in 1979, the survival of the bear poppy now rests in the hands of the St. George community and local conservation organizations.
