The Great Salt Lake is integral to Utah's ecosystem, and the health of the lake has impacts on much of Utah, the economy, and our quality of life.
Join us at USU Research Landscapes on Thursday, November 3 as we discuss the latest research about the lake, and what the future could look like.
The event will be at 4:00 p.m. at the O.C. Tanner headquarters in Salt Lake City, and will include a question-and-answer session and networking opportunities with other attendees.

What is Research Landscapes?

At Utah State University Research Landscapes, we provide an entry-point for state and community decision-makers across the Wasatch Front to connect with the researchers who are investigating the most critical issues facing the state.

Why should I attend?

As the state’s land-grant institution, Utah State University is uniquely situated in the state to help solve Utah’s land, water, and air challenges. During the event, the presenters will share data-driven discoveries to provide the state’s decision-makers and stakeholders with tools and insights to address these critical issues.

What is the event like?

Each event will feature a live presentation that highlights the researcher and their work, followed by a question-and-answer session with the presenter.
