Cottonwood Heights - Bonneville shoreline
hiking over homes
Raised so far...
Total project cost
The Cottonwood Canyons are a
calling card for Utah's tourism industry and the backyard to those living on the Wasatch Front and Back. Working with the landowners whose desire is to see it protected, but who are also charged with maximizing returns, Utah Open Lands has secured a small window of opportunity to save this land for Open Space and a critical link in the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. We cannot thank the landowners enough for donating $835,000 in value - bringing the project cost down to $3-million and giving us this opportunity for preservation.
Connections take us home.
The Bonneville Shoreline Trail is a part of what makes the SLC valley special. Instant access to the outdoors. From the 'burbs to the bench, Utahns value the ability to get out of the day-to-day and into the wild of our own backyards.
Utah Open Lands has secured a
$500,000 grant from the LeRay McAllister Critical Lands fund to save this land, and $1 million from the City of Cottonwood Heights.
The landowners are willing to make a partial contribution as well, but this critical Bonneville Shoreline Trail link will need your support.
We anticipate needing to raise over $1,000,000 to bring this project to fruition.
