Great Salt Lake Issues Forum

The 2016 Great Salt Lake Issues Forum: Great Salt Lake in the Big Picture will be held May 11 - 13 2016 at the University of Utah Officers Club.

2014 was 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.

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."

    - John Muir describing a swim in Great Salt Lake
