Wasatch Environmental Update for November 17, 2019

By John Worlock

Time Out for Some Fun and Education

We are living in a time of mulltiple assaults on our landscapes. We've seen removal of protection for areas within Bears Ears and Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monuments. We see the state-sponsored Inland Port Project project threatening the important wetlands at the south shore of the Great Sale Lake.  We are aware of proposals to dry up the Great Salt Lake by siphoning off the water of the Bear River.

To think that the Wasatch Mountains are somehow exempt from these types of depredations, is not only naive, but dangerous. Why? Because it is happening NOW!

But let’s put aside those worries for an afternoon, at least. On Saturday, November 23, Save Our Canyons and SLC Green Drinks would like to invite you to a Wasatch Open House, sponsored by Pivot RnD. We will gather at the SaltFire Brewing Co. from 2 - 4 p.m and the Beehive Distilling from 4 - 6 p.m. We hope to see you there, but only if you are 21 or older.  We’ll be at 2199 South and 2245 South on West Temple Street.

Come on down this Saturday afternoon to meet the gang and learn about why the Wasatch is so important to our community.   You can discover ways to become an advocate to protect this special place, and get updates on current Save Our Canyons campaigns.

We would like to give a big thank you to Saltfire Brewing Co and Beehive Distilling for supporting the protection of the Wasatch Mountains.
