Invest in the future of our local natural resources!

When you donate to FRIENDS, you're supporting our Lakeside Learning Field Trip Program! This program gets students out of the classroom and into the brine.

We believe in the power of science and in educating a new generation of environmentally engaged learners!

Great Salt Lake is our classroom as we explore ways to help young learners make connections in the natural world.

The money raised through this campaign goes directly towards bus grants for schools, field trip supplies, and state park entry fees!

Why We Care

  • Great Salt Lake, the second most hypersaline Inland Sea in the world, has a fate of becoming even more salty with permanent loss of a large portion of its Bear River fresh water life supply.

    Precious fresh water diverted to support more of the same, the endless expansion of the human race, big box stores, and shopping centers duplicated around the country ruining any future adventure of small town exploration and road trips.

    Everything is becoming the same. Everyone is looking the same. Everyone does the same things. Great Salt Lake is unique and the planet is loosing it as its life blood is stolen from its soft salty shores, waves gently breaking further and further out, leaving vast arrays of dry barren mudflats waiting for phragmites to invade.

    Utah does not own Great Salt Lake. Great Salt Lake is owned by the world.
