Citizens for Grandeur Access


The Grandeur Peak Open Space Preservation Fund is a collaboration of the Trust for Public Land (TPL) - Utah, Utah Open Lands and Save our Canyons.

Together, these non-profits, with the help of the Wasatch Mountain Club, the Mount Olympus Community Council and others, are working to protect access to Grandeur Peak and other recreational and open space resources in Parley's Canyon.

The Good News!
The community has started to raise the money needed to purchase a 14-acre property at the foot of Grandeur Peak, preserving access to the Peak as well as Parley's Canyon and the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.  Through TPL, $230,000 has been raised toward the purchase price of $500,000.

The Challenge!
In raising the final $270,000 needed to purchase and safeguard this property for future generations, the Grandeur Peak Open Space Preservation Fund has secured a challenge grant from Salt Lake County.  If we collectively raise $100,000, Salt Lake County has agreed to provide the balance of the funds required to purchase the land.  In total, every dollar the community raises is match almost 2-1.

The Choice!
This open space is a tremendous asset.  We get one chance to protect this land.  It is up to you and every community advocate of open space, to see that this land is preserved.  Once purchased, the property will be permanently protected through a conservation easement granted to Utah Open Lands.

Act Now!
We need donations by December 31, 2004 if we are to preserve this open space forever.  Please send your tax deductible contribution today to:
