Detailed Information:
Citizens' Committee to SAVE OUR CANYONS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizationfounded in 1972 that is dedicated to the preservation and protection of the Wasatch canyons from excessive development. We prod officials from the Forest Service, County Commissions, Planning Commissions and water departments to make decisions in favor of the public's long-term interest in open space and dispersed recreation, and we appeal when we conclude that they have unnecessarily accommodated developers. We work with other environmental organizations and try to involve the public as much as possible. SAVE OUR CANYONS is the only organization whose sole focus is to preserve and protect our wonderful foothills, canyons and mountains along the Wasatch Front. Please join us and become a part of the effort to keep these areas for everyone to use and enjoy, and not just the basis for more real estate development or tourism. We are a volunteer group and can use your help and your tax-deductible contributions. SAVE OUR CANYONS has played an important role in all of the major positive efforts in the last two decades aimed at saving the natural, undeveloped lands along the WasatchFront. We championed the creation of the Lone Peak and Mt. Olympus wilderness Areas, and we actively participated in the preparation of the current Forest Plan, the Salt LakeCity Watershed Management Plan and the Salt Lake County Wasatch Canyons MasterPlan. We supported the adoption of each of the significant ordinances which help preserve our nearby mountains.
