"Once in his life a man ought to concentrate his mind upon the remembered earth. He ought to give himself up to a particular landscape in his experience; to look at it from as many angles as he can, to wonder upon it, to dwell upon it.

He ought to imagine that he touches it with his hands at every season and listens to the sounds that are made upon it.

He ought to imagine the creatures there and all the faintest motions of the wind. He ought to recollect the glare of the moon and the colors of the dawn and dusk." - N. Scott Momaday

Recurring Donations

Did you know that you can make a recurring monthly, quarterly or semi-annual donation to FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake?

Instead of giving one lump sum, you can split your gift into smaller increments.

For example:

  • $10/month = $120/year
  • $20/month = $240/year
  • $50/month = $600/year

Recently, one member of FRIENDS gave a recurring donation. Since most members don't do recurring donations, we checked with him to make sure it wasn't a mistake. This was his response: "Yes, it was indeed intentional; I'd give more if I could. It's reassuring to know that someone is fighting to preserve a national and international treasure, in the face of constant assaults." Thanks, Richard Middleton!


  • Go to the donation page.
  • Click "Recurring" as donation type. Choose the number of occurences and the amount of each increment.

You did it! Worry-free giving for Lake advocacy, education, research and the arts.

Why We Care

  • At twilight a wild and thrilling spectacle. . . . Dim and pale, the moon, the ghost of a dead world, lifted above the distant Wasatch peaks and stared at the acrid waters of a dead sea.

    Alfred Lambourne, Our Inland Sea, 1887
