Environews: Utah Open Lands saves Owl Meadow

Utah Open Lands raised $700,000 (including a $250,00 grant from the Salt Lake County Council) to purchase Owl Meadow in Emigration Canyon. The meadow, adjacent to the Perkins Flat Preserve, provides nesting habitat for great horned owls, saw-whet owls and hawks.
