Here is a the video section of my friends who are passionate about migratory bird habitat in Farmington Bay, Utah
The 360º bird report at the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival was filmed at Farmington Bay. Look for it in the documentary to see some of the birds that live in the area that UDOT wants to build a freeway through.
If you love wetlands and migratory birds, please send in your email within the next 2 days. You can also send photographs with descriptions of why Farmington Bay needs to be protected for the well being of world bird populations.
Please sign this petition on Change.org http://www.change.org/petitions/gover... and also email UDOT your personally written public comment by September 6, 2013. Petitions are powerful, but you need to also send your individual written comments to UDOT. Your comments will be considered for the UDOT Environmental Impact Statement.
Update: May 12, 2013. You can protect the Great Salt Lake. Please write one letter to Jason now, and one letter after the Draft Environmental Impact Statement is released later this year. They are still accepting comments. We just spoke to the Army Corps of Engineers and they are still accepting emails and letters and photographs for public comment on this project. Let them know why you think the Great Salt Lake should be protected.
