Current Volunteer Opportunities 

• International Coastal Cleanup 

Join us and this year's sponsor, Autoliv, for the 2017 International Coastal Cleanup of Great Salt Lake. Volunteers can sign up here or email Holly Simonsen at snowyegret@fogsl.org or Patricia Edgington at patricia.edgington@autoliv.com. Volunteers will meet for check-in at Great Salt Lake Marina State Park on Saturday, September 16 at 9:00 AM. We will then collect trash and debris from the sensitive ecosystem around Lee Creek. Garbage will be weighed before being placed in dumpsters, and the weight totals will be counted and send to the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup tally.

Please carpool. There are a limited number of parking stalls available at Great Salt Lake Marina State Park and parking along the frontage road can be dangerous. Please bring work gloves, if you have them. We will have a limited number of gloves, but we will provide trash pokers and heavy duty bags. Stay hydrated! Potable water and restrooms are available at Great Salt Lake Marina State Park. It's a good idea to bring your own water bottle. 

Please read, sign, and bring with you (or email) the attached waiver. Volunteering in this capacity comes with inherent risks.

We can't wait to see you there. 


Why We Care

  • "Great Salt Lake is a special place. There is nothing else like it. Do we really want to imagine a time when we have to say "I remember when there used to be a big salty lake out there?" Can we really be so disconnected from our landscape that we fail to act before it's too late? We must protect this resource, this place of life and reflection."
