Facilitator: Understanding Great Salt Lake’s Salinity Why Do We Care? What Are We Doing?



Why We Care

  • We live along the shores of something GREAT - Great Salt Lake.

    And whether we preceive 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 and tomorrow

    The Lake affect continues to modify, influence and impress our lives.
