Our Education team has created self-guided adaptations of our Lakeside Learning Field Trips for Antelope Island State Park and Great Salt Lake State Park in order to provide students with the closest possible experience to our field trip program, while still following social distancing guidelines. If you  are looking for ways to enrich your child's distance learning, we hope you will take a look at the scientific phenomena and hands-on activities that can be discovered at Great Salt Lake.

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.
