Current Volunteer Opportunities 

• International Coastal Cleanup 

Thanks to those who joined us and this year's sponsor, Autoliv, for the 2017 International Coastal Cleanup of Great Salt Lake. We collected over a thousand pounds trash and debris from the sensitive ecosystem around Lee Creek. 

We plan to participate again next year, so stay tuned for another opportunity to get your hands dirty and support the health of Great Salt Lake. 

We can't wait to see you there. 


Why We Care

  • The lake is elemental. It seems to arise from creation itself, the embodiment of Aristotle's classical concept of matter and the universe: earth, air, fire, and water. Seen in this ethereal light -- the gloom of dusk lit by fiery sunlight, alien and snow-covered, leaking water and struggling to exist -- it connects to secret and ancient things. Aristotle's insight may have come to him in a dream, and the dream surely looked like this.
