Cydney Emery: I am lucky to call myself a Utah native. I grew up in Park City and moved to Salt Lake to attend Westminster College. I studied economics, while getting up to the mountains as often as possible to hike, mountain bike, ski and climb. Being in the Wasatch, particularly Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons was and still is my lifeblood.

I now work as an analyst at Energy Strategies, and continue to get into the mountains with family and friends as much as possible. It is never enough!

I have traveled the world- but the beauty and proximity of these mountains continue to make this the place I want to call home. After learning of the mission of Save Our Canyons, I was determined to become part of the movement to protect the wildness and essence of these canyons and mountains.

This work is becoming more and more important as the Utah population grows and as visitation increases. I am humbled and thrilled to be apart of an organization so dedicated to protecting this pressured resource.

My goal is to bring awareness to this organization, promote community participation, and fervently push for preservation.
