This report describes results of a survey to assess county residents’ attitudes and awareness about the Great Salt Lake and its recreation/tourism potential. It measured Davis County citizens’ beliefs about the lake as a natural setting as well as a recreation/tourism destination. The survey took place in conjunction with an ongoing study of use, attitudes, and knowledge about wetlands in northern Utah, part of a project to develop a wetlands education master plan for the Great Salt Lake region under the auspices of the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission and the state Division of Wildlife Resources.
