Current Volunteer Opportunities 

• International Coastal Cleanup 

The 2019 International Coastal Cleanup will be Saturday, September 14 from 9:00 AM to noon. Thanks to generous sponsorships from Autoliv and BudgetDumpster, volunteers will be able to choose from two primary cleanup sites: the Lee Creek Natural Area along the Lake’s south shore or the area south east of the Antelope Island gate house. Come spend a Saturday morning with FRIENDS and help preserve and protect Great Salt Lake ecosystems.

Thank you to our community partners: Compass Minerals, Great Salt Lake Audubon, The Nature Conservancy, Utah Division of Forestry Fire and State Lands, and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.  

Last year, over 60 volunteers removed 2,444.4 lbs. of trash and debris from the shoreline of our inland sea.

Why We Care

  • "This was by far the most exciting and effective wave excursion I ever made this side of the Rocky Mountains; and when at its close I was heaved ashore among the sunny grasses and flowers, I found myself a new creature indeed, and went bounding along the beach with blood all aglow, reinforced by the best salts of the mountains, and ready for any race."
