Utah Open Lands Updates: March 16- March 27
In taking the necessary precautions for the health and safety of our community, Utah Open Lands' Main Street office will be closed through March 27. Staff will be working from home, meetings will be held online and events will be postponed, or canceled, throughout the month of March. Stay tuned for updates after this point.
While our physical office may be closed for the next two weeks, the lands we love are still open. We encourage our community to enjoy a moment in nature to relax, and to de-stress. Our natural spaces allow refreshment, and solace in these uncertain times. From a snowy stroll on the North Round Valley Preserve to a bike ride along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, take the opportunity to find peace in our natural world. Thank you for your understanding, and please do not hesitate to contact us with further questions or comments.
