This screening will be held on the last day of the Great Salt Lake Issues Forum
Every two years, FRIENDS hosts a Great Salt Lake Issues Forum. The Forum provides an opportunity for the Great Salt Lake community to engage in constructive dialogue about the Lake, the future of its ecosystem and its resources. The Forum also brings together conservation resources at work regionally, nationally and hemispherically to build partnerships and advance conservation practices and policies for the Lake.
Visit the 2012 Issues Forum Conference website for more information about the Forum on May 10-11, 2012. Forum registration is a separate event and you need to register at http://www.fogsl.org/issuesforum/2012/
Here is a synopsis:
Great Salt Lake Minerals Corporation received a permit from the Utah Department of Natural Resources to expand their industrial operations. 91,000 acres of shorelines, wetlands, and water on the Great Salt Lake are in jeopardy.
Fifteen non-profit organizations have joined together to form Keep The Lake Great to protect these 91,000 acres. This coalition is appealing to the Army Corps of Engineers to stop this project. This documentary, Evaporating Shorelines, includes commentary from government officials, scientists, attorneys, and residents of Utah, about the value of the lake from the scientific viewpoint to the aesthetics of the lake to recreational usage. The film includes footage of the amazing birds, plants, and animals that are crucial to this ecosystem.
