Utah Open Lands is working towards a September 10 deadline to purchase 27 acres of open space at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon.
The land could become a regional trailhead for the Bonneville Shoreline Trail or it could become an upscale housing development, depending on whether the $3 million purchase price can be raised in time.
A challenge grant from AHE/CI Trust doubles donations made before the deadline.
