Program Description

Our DVD celebrates the biological, economic and recreational attributes of the western hemisphere's largest saline lake. Featuring the work of more than 30 area photographers, this dramatic film introduces the wealth of interrelationships, interdependencies and diversity among humans and all life, and between this life and the Great Salt Lake environment.

    Why We Care

    • I grew up in Clinton, Utah, not far from the Great Salt Lake. From a young age the lake became a place of recreation, discovery, and solace. Every visit to its shores provides a unique and inspiring experience.
