On a clear, sunny Saturday, BYU Sustainability joined nonprofit LDS Earth Stewardship for a fall cleanup at Utah Lake State Park.
Teaming up with local nonprofit Conserve Utah Valley and Provo Parks & Recreation, BYU Sustainability organized the last Slate Canyon Saturday of 2021, on September 25th. Volunteers filled three truck beds with tires, trash, and trimmings. Special thanks to BYU professors Clint Whipple and Ron Harris and BYU Recycling's Bill Rudy for joining us!
On August 4th, 2021, BYU, UVU, and other partners held a free, public symposium on the challenges and opportunities facing one of the largest and most productive freshwater lakes in the western U.S.—our own Utah Lake. Learn more, watch recordings, and get involved at utahlake.byu.edu.
Focusing on environmental sustainability throughout September, the Ballard Center for Social Impact partnered with BYU Sustainability to offer six screenings of the film 2040, which explores existing new approaches to climate change and what could happen if they shifted into the mainstream.
