A geoantiquity is a rare geologic landform, and like other antiquities, well worth preserving. But as this film shows, many of these valuable geologic features are not yet protected in parks. Set in the Great Salt Lake area of Utah, the film explores how local geologists are publicizing the geoantiquity concept and keeping development of several geoantiquities at bay. The geologists' efforts are placed within the broader global movement to establish "geoparks," with examples of successful geoparks in Greece and Ireland. The potential of using this revolutionary new land preservation concept in the United States is vast, and several potential geoparks in the western US are also explored.

As the population of the U.S. soars, this geoheritage option will start looking appealing to American planners, environmental geologists and land conservationsists (who've attempted to focus on protecting biodiversity).
