Ilan Hammond, Policy Assistant

Ilan Hammond fell in love with the diverse beauty Utah’s landscapes has to offer since moving to Salt Lake City from Singapore in 2002. He is currently a student at the University of Utah pursuing a B.A. major in International Studies with an emphasis in sustainability and development, double minoring in Spanish and Environmental and sustainability studies. When not studying or volunteering in the community, he can be found camping, fly fishing, rock climbing, and hiking around the Wasatch mountains and various state parks with his faithful dog Toni. He is passionate about environmental issues around Utah, which is why he was drawn to intern at Save Our Canyons as a policy assistant.



Fran Botto, Community Engagement Coordinator

Growing up in a family of mountaineers, Fran developed a love for the Wasatch at a very young age. Through a childhood of outdoor adventures, she learned how precious the nature around her truly was. In 2015, she decided to further follow her passion by enrolling in the University of Utah to pursue a degree in International Studies and Environmental and Sustainability Studies. This educational path introduced her to the amazing community of environmental nonprofits and dedicated staff, like those at Save Our Canyons, who share the same devotion as her for protecting the wild spaces around Utah. By being the Community Engagement Coordinator she is able to raise awareness and educate those around her about the importance of land conservation. When she is not studying or in the office, you can find her rock climbing, skiing, hammock camping, napping, and snacking in the great outdoors.
