Managing and preserving the delicate environment of the Central Wasatch is the basis of Mountain Accord. The Accord sets out to find consensus on critical new programs that will monitor and help reduce the impacts of growth, use, development, and climate change.

H20Water is Life

As our population increases, the importance of healthy  watersheds, vegetation, wildlife, and other natural resources will become crucial. All future plans will continue to aggressively protect the water shed.


Monitoring Changes

The Accord directs us to develop an environmental monitoring system to produce a scorecard to inform planners and help us make decisions that will take into account impacts to environmental conditions.


Federal Protections

Mountain Accord proposes the creation of a new federal designation for the Central Wasatch Range, which would allow for all existing recreation activities and current uses while providing elevated protections and management standards in the CWR.
