Wasatch Wednesday with Author Ayja Bounous

March 24, 2021 @ 6:00 am

Between the Utah Legislative Session and Save Our Canyons Lone Peak Celebration – March has historically been a busy month for the Wasatch Mountains. It has always been a time, where we as a community, come together to celebrate a kinship for the community that is anchored around the Wasatch Mountains.
 
This year, Save Our Canyons will not be hosting our 19th Annual Lone Peak Celebration in March. Instead we invite you to connect with us over Zoom for our first ever Wasatch Wednesday Speaker Series. This series gives us an opportunity to celebrate the Wasatch Mountains, while practicing social distancing.
 
Help us welcome Brad MickelJohn on March 17th, Ayja Bounous with Torrey House Press on March 24th, and Laura Briefer and Mike Devries on March 31st all held at 7:30pm-8:30pm. Registration is needed to attend any or all of the speaker series.
As a community driven organization, our members guide and direct our work. Join us! Annual memberships are $35 and allow us to continue to advocate loudly for our water, land, recreational access and quality of life that result from a connected and protected Wasatch Mountains.
