Mission Statement

Save Our Canyons is dedicated to preserving and protecting the Wasatch Mountains, canyons and foothills

Description

We are professionals, recreationists, environmentalists, outdoor industry representatives, cabin owners, city dwellers - the Citizens’ Committee to Save Our Canyons! We value open spaces, environmental integrity, places to play, places to pray, our water quality, scenic views, access to trails the many, many valued assets that this Wasatch Range provides to our impeccable quality of life!

Salt Lake City is fantastically fortunate to have the Wasatch Range at its doorstep, with its jagged peaks, mountain lakes and beautiful forests located within a few miles of the city center. The mountains are primarily public land administered by the Forest Service, but have patented private mining claims scattered throughout. One can hike into a beautiful cirque filled with snow, trees, and blue sky, in an hour and a half from the city’s edge. It is the contrast between city and nature that Save Our Canyons strives to retain. Six-hundred-thousand residents also utilize the water flowing out of Big and Little Cottonwood Creeks, which is praised as much for its high quality taste as the snow is for its quality skiing. The aim of our organization has, from its beginning, been the protection of this magnificent de-facto public park and all of the natural wonders contained within against excessive commercial and residential development.
