Explore the impacts of Bear River Development

You’re invited to join one of our WaterRoots Field Trips to stop Bear River Development this summer! These fun and informative field trips bring together elected officials and activists like you to explore the impacts of this massive diversion. Participants will enjoy touring the Bear River Wetland Migratory Bird Refuge and fly fishing at Temple Fork, while engaging elected officials about the impact Bear River Development will have on the Great Salt Lake.

Our first field trip is Saturday, July 14th and the price is $15 per person. We are also looking for passionate volunteers who are interested in lending a hand at these events. If you’d like to attend or volunteer please contact Sarah at sarah@utahrivers.org, Max at max@utahrivers.org or call our office at (801) 486-4776. Space is limited.

Proposed Bear River Development would lower the Lake 2-4 feet and eliminate the precious wetland habitat that 8 million migratory birds depend on during their global travels. Our WaterRoots Field Trip series is a perfect opportunity to learn more about the impacts of Bear River Development and explore the existing alternatives to wasteful water development.

The Utah Rivers Council has been leading the fight against Bear River Development since 1997. Your contribution of $35, $50, $100 or any amount will help make our work possible. Make a tax-deductible donation today; the fate of the Great Salt Lake and millions of migratory birds is at stake!

We look forward to seeing you at one of our WaterRoots Field Trips!
