Great Salt Lake Elements:
Fort Douglas Officers’ Club
May 7-9, 2014
We live along the shores of something Great.
And, whether we perceive it or not...
during its relatively short life as a remnant of ancient Lake Bonneville...
it has affected all of us.
From the ancients who lived in the Great Salt Lake wetlands...
to the growing populations of today...
the Lake affect continues to modify, influence and impress our lives...
and their lives...
and the lives of millions of migratory birds that rely on it.
Be a part of this Great Salt Lake celebration.
About the Issues Forum:
This is FRIENDS’ 10th Biennial Great Salt Lake Issues Forum. FRIENDS will celebrate its 20th Birthday in October 2014. Our gift to the people of Utah and to the Lake is to bring together the artists, historians, scientists, educators, policy makers, academics, and industry representatives, all of whom recognize the tremendous asset this unique ecosystem is to our culture, our community, and our consciousness. Thanks for being a part of this Great Salt Lake celebration.
