Science in the Parks is a science outreach program for children of all ages in the Salt Lake City (SLC) area. We meet for this organization every other week where the planning and creating the science activities, demonstration, and curriculum for the program itself that can be used in the summer and during the semester.
Our biggest events will be held over the summer, where science activities will be demonstrated and available for children to observe and interact with. The goal of the program would be to show children that science can be fun and that they can be apart of it. Join GroupMe: https://groupme.com/join_group/48466396/6fHWkDiQ
Who We Are
Trails and Natural Lands (TNL) oversees the care and improvement of Salt Lake City’s trails, open space and natural land. Hundreds of volunteers devote thousands of hours each year to keep our trails, water corridor and open spaces in good condition. Most of that work is accomplished through community stewardship, group service projects and adopt-a-spot sections that receive regular maintenance.
Connecting people through nature and our waterways.
Our Mission: Inspiring a common vision, over the next 100 years, to revitalize our waterways, connecting people through greenways in the Salt Lake Valley.
Hidden Water unveils surface water systems on the east side of Salt Lake Valley, both culinary and irrigation. The web site follows the seven major streams of the Wasatch Front, plus minor ones, and tracks that water from headwaters to the Jordan River and then Great Salt Lake. It intermixes contemporary photographs with historical photographs from several archives showing earlier uses and diversions of water. The web site documents how stakeholders utilize the water with treatment plants, hydropower plants and irrigation ditches. In turn, these public, recreational and commercial uses flow from water rights dating back to territorial days

The Program for Air Quality, Health and Society was awarded a UCAIR grant to develop an air quality game with a goal of engaging high-school students around air quality and the effects of collective personal decisions on air quality. Play the game here.
he Utah Geological Survey (UGS) is a division of the Utah Department of Natural Resources. Several specialized programs comprise the UGS: Energy & Minerals, Geologic Hazards, Geologic Information & Outreach, Geologic Mapping, Groundwater & Wetlands, and Paleontology.
Utah has experienced 17 earthquakes greater than magnitude (M) 5.5 since pioneer settlement in 1847, and geologic investigations of our region’s faults indicate a long history of repeated large earthquakes of M 6.5 and greater prior to settlement. Seismic activity can often trigger a succession of additional potentially destructive hazards. The seismic-related hazards listed below all possess their own potential for destruction. Some areas of the state are more susceptible than others when it comes to being at risk.
Community science is the term used to describe research projects conducted in collaboration by the general public and researchers to answer real world questions. UHZ runs several community science programs that you can get involved with.
All you have to do is pick one that looks interesting to you and sign up with our conservation team! Check out what we have going on for 2021.
For over two decades, Wild Utah Project has applied the principles of conservation science to land and wildlife management. We bring together community science volunteers, wildlife and habitat studies, technical support, and computer mapping analysis using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to conservation partners in our region. We seek to engage state and federal agencies and nonprofit partners who are in a position to make on-the-ground decisions regarding public resource management. As state and federal land and wildlife management agencies have their budgets slashed like never before, we continue to provide our partners with effective science-based strategies for conservation.
