Our Wasatch Wilderness Stewardship and Education Project along with Save Our Canyons Kids helps to connect people to nature and restores our public lands. Our goal is to provide participants of these programs with the information and tools needed that can be applied at home to help create a long-term impact on the Wasatch. Current studies have shown that youth in urban areas are spending less than 7-minutes outdoors. Our wilderness areas are offer high quality natural areas but need stewardship and maintenance in response to intense use.

During 2019, we have a goal of expanding our Save Our Canyons Kids Program through the number of clubs, organizations, and schools that we partner with and increasing the number of youth that we educate. For the Stewardship project, is our goal to have more stewardship volunteer hikes, increase the number of volunteers for these events, double the miles of trails improved within our wilderness areas, and double the amount of trash picked up and water features cleared. Thank you Ben McAdams for helping us with this program and for writing this letter of recommendation helping us recieve $5,000 from the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation.
