Great Salt Lake faces many threats including development, drought, and climate change, in addition to abuse and misuse by people. Educating the lake's visitors on the importance of this special place plays a vital role in its preservation long-term, and you can help make it easier!

On October 1, join staff from Audubon's Saline Lakes Program and Gillmor Sanctuary to install new interpretive signs around the Lee Creek Natural Area along Great Salt Lake's southern shores. The signs will teach visitors about the local ecosystem, why it's so important to birds and other wildlife, and how it can be preserved and protected. By helping us install the new signs, you'll help others appreciate all that the Lee Creek Natural Area has to offer. Plus, we bet you'll learn some interesting facts along the way, as well!

On the day of the event, staff and volunteers will break up into small teams and install signs along the boundary and entrances of the Lee Creek Natural Area. We will regroup around 11:00 - 11:30 am to have lunch.

Please keep an eye on the forecast and wear long sleeves and pants. Rubber boots or hiking shoes that are water resistant and good for walking off-trail and through the brush. Please also bring work gloves, pliers (if you have a pair), and lunch! Water will be provided.

Cost: Free
