Since 1994, FRIENDS has been working to preserve and protect the Great Salt Lake Ecosystem through education, research, advocacy, and the arts. Turning 20 calls for celebration.

We want you to be a part of our briny 20th Anniversary Gala! Lots of people. Lots of great food. Lots of opportunities to reflect on what we  - collectively - have accomplished over these twenty years. And a salty silent auction that is sure to have something to catch your eye to remember the event.

Why We Care

  • The whole environment of Great Salt Lake is a place of wonder. Life abounds in water, on islands, and about the marshland edges where migratory birds find refuge during long flights north and south. It is also a source of income for companies around its rim (unfortunately). Challenges for the Lake today are balancing acts. We must continue to foster the generous gifts the Lake provides for wildlife, community, and visitors as well as make peace with the human intrusions that threaten not only the Lake’s beauty, but also its very existence as the bountiful center of a thriving community along the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains.
