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

  • Much has been made of the tragic loss of rain forests in our hemisphere... But, in fact, because of their productivity of plant and animal matter rich in fats and proteins, freshwater marshes are the most productive ecosystems on Earth.
