Protect Parley's Canyon. We need you to sign the petition to Tree Farm LLC, Jesse Lassley, and Granite Construction (GVA) advocating for the protection of the Wasatch Mountains.

In November 2021, Tree Farm LLC filed an application with the Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining (DOGM) to open a 634-acre limestone quarry in Parley’s Canyon. Tree Farm later hired Granite Construction to help manage the mine.

In response to Tree Farm’s application, Salt Lake County passed an ordinance banning new mining projects in the Wasatch Mountains. Tree Farm filed a lawsuit challenging the county’s ban. Although the lawsuit is ongoing, we’ve seen efforts by Tree Farm and Granite Construction to pass legislation that would help them win in court (read more about HB 527 Mining Operations Amendments). Thanks to your engagement, we’ve staved off those efforts for now.

Save Our Canyons strongly opposes the proposed mine in Parley’s Canyon because of the grave impacts it will have on our water supply, air quality, wildlife, and recreation opportunities.
