The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and is host to the new interpretive center. This building, located in Escalante, is also the administrative offices for the National Park Service and National Forest Service. The Park Service manages a large portion of the Escalante River and the side drainage's that flow into Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (Lake Powell). The Forest Service manages all the land north of both towns including the entire Aquarius Plateau and much more. Questions for any of these agencies should be directed to the front desk at the inter-agency building. The visitors/interpretive center has a visitors information desk on-site that can provide basic details on permit requirements, current road and trail conditions as well as fire or other restrictions. The phone number for the Escalante Interagency Visitors Center is 435-826-5499, the website address is firstname.lastname@example.org. It is a good idea for people visiting, to stop in to check out the new complex and get some information on the area. They are glad to help you enjoy a safe outdoor experience.
