Current Volunteer Opportunities 

• International Coastal Cleanup 

The 2019 International Coastal Cleanup will be Saturday, September 14 from 9:00 AM to noon. Thanks to generous sponsorships from Autoliv and BudgetDumpster, volunteers will be able to choose from two primary cleanup sites: the Lee Creek Natural Area along the Lake’s south shore or the area south east of the Antelope Island gate house. Come spend a Saturday morning with FRIENDS and help preserve and protect Great Salt Lake ecosystems.

Thank you to our community partners: Compass Minerals, Great Salt Lake Audubon, The Nature Conservancy, Utah Division of Forestry Fire and State Lands, and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.  

Last year, over 60 volunteers removed 2,444.4 lbs. of trash and debris from the shoreline of our inland sea.

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."

    Janessa Edwards, FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake Education and Outreach Director
