    Thank goodness for the inspiration of so many to have the U of U dedicate 100 acres for our Red Butte botanical garden that is known for their conservation and environmental education. Executive Deputy Director, Derreck Hansen, is thrilled for the Red Butte concert series which is underway. The garden is also hosting events and is the most stunning back drop for weddings and summer camp hosting 250 events yearly.

Her plant shop located at 363 East Harvey Milk Blvd, called Thyme and Place is a dream come true because she takes her passion for plants and teaches us how to get them to thrive in our home. Melinda is serious about fostering her plants in our high sierra desert environment, so when we’re ready to buy them and take them home, the plant has already transitioned to our climate. The SLC Economic Development Fund was also critical in supporting Melinda’s business.

There isn’t a job at Ski Utah that Nathan hasn’t done including interning and being the receptionist. He has worked his way up and is respected among the professionals in this 1.7 billion dollar ski industry for the state of Utah. Nathan is an outdoor enthusiast, athlete and cares deeply about our environment. He has his eye on how efficient and responsible we need to be to continue to have the greatest snow on earth. He said our snow making tech capacity is remarkable and we start early in November for our base, but we can’t just rely on making our own snow. We have to be good stewards of our environment and transportation is the hot issue right now. Nathan likes the gondola idea for the Little Cottonwood Canyons to get folks up efficiently, avoid huge traffic lines, reduce carbon emissions, reduce air pollution and avoid big snow slides that can be dangerous.
