Save Our Canyons Graffiti Removal Coordinator
Alec Quick is currently a senior at the University of Utah pursuing a BS in Environmental and Sustainability Studies with minors in Geography and
Political Science. Born and raised in Salt Lake, he spends most of his free time enjoying the mountains surrounding the valley, especially Little Cottonwood Canyon. His main passion is bouldering; however, Alec also enjoys backpacking, hiking, mountain biking and skiing. Being raised in the mountains, he sees them as a vital resource offering recreation and fresh water. Alec recently traveled to Peru where he worked on a small farm in the Andes, interacting and working alongside indigenous people. This experience helped further his understanding of the deep ties humans have with nature. This experience also helped him understand the importance of conservation and the preservation of wilderness. Back in Salt Lake, he was able to see the same ties to nature, such as the sublime feeling associated with the vastness of wilderness and the ecosystem services the snowpack in the Wasatch fills, which is why Alec decided to intern with Save Our Canyons. He feels as if development in public lands intrudes not only on his physical well being by cutting off recreational access, but also impacts his mental wellbeing. Alec decided to intern with Save Our Canyons to better his understanding of environmental policy and is committed to doing all that he can do stop unwanted development in wilderness areas and on our public lands.
