Take Action: Write a letter to your state representatives (sample linked below)
Utah Lake is one of the largest and most productive freshwater lakes in the western U.S. This keystone ecosystem is the centerpiece of our community, providing critical habitat, abundant recreational opportunities, and invaluable ecosystem services such as removing pollution and creating local precipitation. In this time of dramatic change, we need evidence-based management and legislation to protect and restore this unique, beautiful, and dynamic lake.
Who You Should Write: It’s important to write to as many reps and senators as you can. While several items are local, all reps and senators will be voting on bills so they need to hear from many people. Start with your representatives and then expand to others who cover Utah County districts.
It is easy to find the emails of each House Rep and Senator.
- Find your Utah House Representatives by going to https://house.utah.gov/house-members/ and look for your county. Click on the representative’s name for contact info.
- Find your Utah State Senators by going to https://senate.utah.gov/senate-roster/ and click “View Table” to see county designations. Click on senator’s name for contact info.
What You Include in Your Letter: We created a template to make this as easy as possible. Feel free to make it your own:
Thank you so much for your participation and help! This is a big “ask” but it’s why we formed this group – to have a network of like minded people guiding conversations. This is one of those moments in time we can make a difference!
