• Stewardship

On-the-ground programs with measurable results

Our stewardship programs are aimed at solving existing problems by working with partners and volunteers. These efforts are aimed at Big and Little Cottonwood and Millcreek Canyons. With such high levels of recreation use each year, these canyons run the risk of being loved to death like so many other busy areas in our public lands. Through careful use and working together, we can mitigate this problem!

Partners in our efforts include community volunteers, the National Forest Foundation, Wasatch Legacy Project, Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, Solitude, Salt Lake County, the Town of Alta, REI, Friends of Alta, the Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities Watershed, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Save our Canyons, Salt Lake Climbers Alliance, and more!

Projects range from native plant restoration, mapping invasive weeds, to restoring and maintaining popular trails. Take look below to see the details and some great accomplishments from these efforts!
