Our guest presentation for the July 10 general meeting will be from the "Save Our Canyons" organization, which is a local group "dedicated to protecting the beauty and wilderness of the Wasatch Canyons, mountains, and foothills." Currently, our mountain watershed is also threatened by Ski-link and other development, mainly by out-of-state (and country) interests, trying to make money by exploitation of our precious canyons and mountains. This locally founded organization has been working since its founding in 1972 to "save our canyons." Please join us for an entertaining and educational evening.
The meeting will be held a 7:30 PM in Eliot Hall at the First Unitarian Church located at 569 South 1300 East, in Salt Lake City. The lecture will be followed by questions and answers and light refreshments. Please come and bring a friend.
All interested people are welcome, there is no charge to attend but donations are always welcomed.
