Community science at work in Utah
Community scientists just like you are collecting critical data to conserve the local wildlife and wildlands we hold dear. Wild Utah Project provides individuals across Utah with opportunities to get outdoors and unleash their inner scientist. The data collected by our fellow community members allows state and federal agencies and conservation nonprofits to fill critical data gaps that inform management decisions for our public resources.

Local Art + Education + Food
Wild Earth aims to create a culture of conscious consumerism. Through yearly art markets, it's a place where the community can support local artists, learn about current environmental issues facing Utah, and contribute to the ongoing work of non-profit partners. On May 4th, 10% of all proceeds of the Earth Day Market will benefit Wild Utah Project!
When: Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 12 PM - 6 PM

The Henefer Lek
On a pre-dawn morning earlier this month, we brought a group of our supporters to see male Greater sage-grouse strut their stuff at a local sage-grouse mating ground near Henefer, Utah. Though still under 6-12 inches of snow, the wonder of this lek did not disappoint. The males birds were in their full plumage striking poses and sparring against their competition.
Black Rosy-finch Study
In March and April we successfully kicked off Phase I of our Black Rosy-finch Study! We fitted Black Rosy-finches' legs with research tags and deployed special bird feeders to track their movement and survival. This project is only possible because of your support and our partnership with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Tracy Aviary, Utah State University, Department of Defense, and many others!
