Student Chapter Resources


Students are essential for change

We believe that students are a critical part of the network to save Great Salt Lake. They are the upcoming generation, left to inherit all of the problems of the past and present. Because of this, Grow the Flow is committed to supporting students across the Great Salt Lake watershed as we all work together to save our lake.

Our Vision for Student Chapters

1) Connecting students to the lake, and helping them feel empowered to get involved

2) Building a network of lake allies to help each other help the lake

3) Increase students’ knowledge of the lake and its challenges

4) Help craft and/or advocate legislation to help the lake

Student Resources

Currently, Grow the Flow has Student Chapters at the following locations:

  • Brigham Young University
  • Utah Valley University
  • Salt Lake Community College
  • High Schools around Salt Lake (Youth Coalition for Great Salt Lake)
