- Campman joins the effort to save Bonanza Flats -

Campman is proud to join numerous other businesses and individuals in an effort to protect some of Utah’s most famous and beautiful land. We have already seen numerous “land battles” across the country this year. From protection of state and federal parks to public land disputes and more, the efforts made by sportsman and outdoor enthusiasts on behalf of our most beautiful national treasures has been immense. From coast to coast, we can’t say that one battle is more important than the other, as each are equally unique and important to those directly affected and who live in the area or states in question.
For our small, homegrown business, this particular issue takes place right here in our backyard. Bonanza Flats is an almost 1,400 acre section of high alpine forest located in the Wasatch Mountains between three of the state’s most famous ski hills. This land is home to an abundance of wildlife, wildflowers and possibility. Possibility that has been enjoyed by hikers, skiers and more for generations. Possibility that we hope will forever be linked to nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts and not subdivisions, golf courses or exclusive retreats.
In November of 2016, the town of Park City voted to tax themselves $25 million to save this piece of land along Guardsman Pass. The price for the property is $38 million dollars, and we are hoping to help the coalition of local recreational, environmental and conservation non-profits to raise the remaining $13 million by the March 15th deadline.
We hope that you’ll check out any of the following sites to learn more about and donate to these efforts.
