We are a non-political non-profit organization with a mission to continuously improve the environment of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons through stewardship and education programs. Our work is accomplished by actively partnering with hard-working citizens, non-profit organizations, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Salt Lake City Watershed, Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude ski areas, REI, and other area groups and businesses. CCF works with hundreds of dedicated volunteers who give thousands of service hours each year to conduct educational and environmental improvement projects. CCF is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation.
