KÜHL Donates $25,000 to Preserve 1,350 Acres of High Alpine Forest in Utah’s Central Wasatch
The Privately-Owned Outdoor Apparel Company Joins Local Conservation Groups and Residents to Save Bonanza Flats from Developers
KÜHL Clothing is donating $25,000 to partner Save Our Canyons today to help raise the necessary $4 million to save Bonanza Flats. The 1,350-acre parcel of open land faces the threat of being developed if the money is not raised by June 15, 2017. According to the Save Our Canyons website, previous plans to develop the land have included an 18-hole golf course, luxury retreat, high-end homes and ski lifts.
The effort to raise money to purchase the land for conservation began in the fall of 2016. A coalition of non-profit organizations and recreation groups has worked to raise awareness and close to $34 million thus far. Save Our Canyons began circulating a petition for Salt Lake County Council to join other public entities including Summit County, Wasatch County, Salt Lake City and Park City to commit funds to save Bonanza Flats on Monday of this week.
KÜHL and its Founder Kevin Boyle have been long-time members of Save Our Canyons and have worked together in the past to help preserve the wilderness and quality of life the Wasatch Mountains affords Utah residents. KÜHL invites Utah residents and our customers around the world to join us in this effort to help preserve open spaces. Every dollar helps. Please visit Save Our Canyons to make your tax-deductible donation today.
Bonanza Flats is situated near the towns of Midway and Park City between Brighton, Deer Valley, and Park City ski resorts and can be accessed via the scenic drive over Guardsman’s Pass. The area is home to wildlife including black bear, deer, moose and birds of prey. Nearby hiking and mountain bike trails provide a prime place to enjoy the mountain air and the drive is a popular place to enjoy the colorful changing leaves during fall.
