The Great Salt Lake: Water Not Wasted
This presentation covers a variety of important issues surrounding Great Salt Lake and the water that feeds it. It covers the purpose of the Great Salt Lake Ecosystem Program (GSLEP) and demonstrates how we accomplish managing and conserving the avian and aquatic communities of Great Salt Lake. Participants in this talk can expect to learn about the brine shrimp harvest industry and how it is managed by GSLEP. They will learn about the life history of brine shrimp and why they are so important. Participants will also learn about how the millions of birds, people that use the lake for recreation, industries and quality of life in the Salt Lake valley will be affected by lowering lake levels. They will learn about the watershed and why it is very important to continue to allow water to reach Great Salt Lake.
