2018 Utah Legislative Session

Dear FRIENDS,

FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake's mission is to protect Great Salt Lake ecosystems through education, research, advocacy, and the arts.

This year, the 2018 Utah Legislative Session is January 22 - March 8, 2018. During the 2018 Utah Legislative Session, FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake will be tracking issues and bills that are important to our mission. This year, we are expecting bills that relate to the proposed Bear River dam and the Promontory Point Landfill.

As the session begins, FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake will be sending important action alerts to our members and constituents. We invite you to participate in your local government by communicating with your state representatives to let them know you care about the issues that impact Great Salt Lake.

Participating in your local and state government has a big impact on our resources here in Utah. This local advocacy is even more important because our federal government has turned its back on the environment.

In advance of the session, find out who your Utah Representatives and Senators are here.

We look forward to participating alongside our members during the 2018 Utah Legislative Session.

Best,

FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake

Board of Directors and Staff

Why We Care

  • Several years ago I was enchanted by Alfred Lambourne’s romanticized paintings of the Great Salt Lake, so began my own quest to explore its islands and capture what I saw in quick, plein air, oil sketches.

    I made many day-trips to Black Rock and spent a significant amount of time camping on Stansbury and Antelope Islands, climbing their trails and swimming in their bays. My paintings became my diary as I observed the changing light and shadow on the rocks and water. The brine flies and gnats often hovered over my shoulder anxious to immortalize themselves in the sticky colorful oil paint.
