Save Our Canyons is dedicated to protecting the beauty and wildness of the Wasatch canyons, mountains, and foothills.

The Citizens Committee to Save Our Canyons strives to educate the public and further the goals of protecting the natural environments around Salt Lake City. They achieve this through active involvement in planning processes at city, county, state, and federal levels. They raise awareness on issues of concern through various outlets (newsletter, mass media, local radio and community events, etc.) They also spend substantial time and energy working with local government entities, and their staff and elected officials, as approximately 20% of the land mass in the Wasatch Mountains is privately owned and, therefore, under the jurisdiction of these local government bodies. Another of their major activities is the effort to get citizens actively involved in public land issues. They accomplish this through our extensive volunteering program.
