Get peace of mind while advocating to restore Wasatch Wilderness. Save Our Canyons is teaming up with the Forest Service for our Wilderness Stewardship Project this summer. The Forest Service is in need of our help due to being understaffed while being tasked to maintain thousands of acres of the Wasatch Mountains. We realize that many rely on these mountains for enjoyment of the outdoors, but lack an functional understanding of the importance of the Wasatch watershed and the sensitivity of this landscape to external pressures.

Save Our Canyons recognizes our responsibility to actively care for this landscape by helping to maintain it and educate those who use it. Our tasks will consist of trail maintenance, restore and rehabilitate impacted areas to their natural state, garbage removal, dispersal of illegal campsites along with fire pits, and improve the overall environment of the Wasatch Range.

Trail Maintenance at Broads Fork Hike on July 28th!

We have partnered with the Forest Service to partake in trail maintenance and restoration of the Broads Fork Trail in Big Cottonwood Canyon. It is our goal to increase the number of people helping to maintain and repair their existing trails, paths, creeks, and keep the environment healthy overall!

Plan on meeting at the Big Cottonwood Canyon park and ride at 8:30 am! We will be starting this project at around 9:00 am and ending around 3:00 pm. We need 10 volunteers so invite a friend, family members, or adventure partner!

Volunteers will need closed toe shoes or hiking boots with good tread, working gloves, enough water to stay hydrated, lunch, sunscreen, and a hat.

Meeting location: Big Cottonwood Canyon park and ride (map)! Look for the Save Our Canyons banner to find our group.

Illegal Campfire Removal at Lake Blanche on August 11th!

We are looking for advocates to help in the process of removing illegal campsites along with fire pits at Lake Blanche. Leaving illegal campsites along with fire pits promotes community members to use areas that do not allow fires and camping. We need your help as people that use and love the Wasatch to restore these areas back to their natural form that we all love and care about.
