Support Save Our Canyons!

Save Our Canyons was founded 50 years ago in response to the opening of Snowbird. As we sit here writing this letter, we think about the fact that it’s been a year of sobering reminders that the natural world needs us humans to not only live in harmony with it, but to show up and protect it. And as our need to advance our species often comes at the expense of the environment. It doesn’t and shouldn’t have to be this way. 

When you look back on the last 50 years in the Wasatch Mountains, it’s undeniable the impact humans have had on the land. Some humans only see it as a resource to be gained, profited from, built upon. We’re depleting our earth of its details one at a time. Tree by tree, flower by flower, we’re diminishing the details that make-up the “wild” of wilderness. And with the rapid growing population in Salt Lake City and beyond, the development pressures facing the Wasatch Range are not going away, unless we unite together around the shared goal of protecting the beauty and wildness of the Wasatch Mountains. 

We need to raise $95,000 to sustain our efforts, which have only intensified during the Utah Department Of Transportation (UDOT) Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC) Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS). The wild experiences that inspire our community cannot be built, but they will be lost without perpetual defense and permanent protection. We have $25,000 in matching grants on the line generously provided by Petra Foundation, local Wasatch defender John Johnson, and Hank Hemingway! Donate today for a dollar-for-dollar match on your end of year gift:
