A $500 joint reward from the Emery County Historical Society and the United States Bureau of Land Management is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the recent vandalism at the Buckhorn Wash pictograph panel.

Three plaques have been removed from a large boulder at the site. One plaque identified the panel as a state historical site, another celebrated the project as part of the state centennial legacy and the third listed the contributors.

All other signs and infrastructure at the site were undisturbed and no vandalism was detected to the panel.

"This vandalism concerns us," indicated Price BLM field office manager Patrick Gubbins. "The plaques commemorate the hard work and dedication of those who helped to restore and maintain this rich cultural resource for future generations."

"We hope that, by offering this joint reward, someone will come forward with tips that will lead law enforcement to the few disrespectful people that removed these plaques,"

The Buckhorn Wash rockart panel was restored in 1995 through the efforts of local citizens with the cooperation of Emery County, BLM and other agencies.

The artwork was restored by a professional curator and the site work was finished by volunteers.

The plaques were placed on the boulder in recognition of the efforts.

The plaques will cost between $300 to $500 apiece to replace.

Local residents with information regarding the incident are encouraged contact the Emery County Sheriffs office at (435)381-2404.
