Announcing the 2016 Great Salt Lake Issues Forum

29 December 2015 Published in News & Events

FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake is excited to announce that we are working on planning the 2016 Great Salt Lake Issues Forum, May 11-13th at the University of Utah Officers Club.

The title of the program is Great Salt Lake in the Big Picture.

As usual we’ll include resources from other saline systems so we can share our insights, learn from each other, and make the world a smaller place.

Please continue checking our website and social media for updates on the forum.

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.
