Save Our Canyons was founded in 1972 with the mission of protecting the beauty and wildness of the Wasatch Mountains, canyons and foothills. From a handful of passionate advocates working to preserve the Wasatch Mountains from the threat of ski resort expansion, Save Our Canyons has grown to become one of the foremost grassroots advocacy groups engaged in conservation issues in the state of Utah.
Save Our Canyons has been at the forefront of efforts to stop controversial developments that would forever alter the naturalness of the Wasatch and negatively backcountry recreation, diminish suitability of wilderness quality lands and harm sensitive habitat. In addition to playing successful defense, Save Our Canyons also has an impressive track record of seeing our conservation proposals realized as designated wilderness with Lone Peak, Twin Peaks, Mt. Olympus, Mt. Naomi, Mount Timpanogos, and Mt. Nebo Wilderness areas.
Save Our Canyons is dedicated to protecting the beauty and wildness of the Wasatch Mountains. We are a member driven organization made up of year-round outdoor enthusiasts working to ensure a healthy future for this unique range. Join us!
