The Great Salt Lake: Water Not Wasted

This presentation will highlight the importance of keeping water in Great Salt Lake. Great Salt Lake brings millions of birds to the State of Utah to fuel up for their long migrations and it also hosts many birds that stay in the valley to feed on brine shrimp and brine flies. The lake is also important for many big industries that use it's resources for the benefit of human life, from table salt to fertilizers. The beauty of lake brings photographers, tourists and recreation to our State. There are so many reasons why the water that flows into Great Salt Lake is not wasted and this talk will cover five of the main reasons and hopefully shine a light on just how amazing this natural resource is.
