Community Programs

Community Education Visits

Civically-minded groups such as community councils, clubs, religious groups, businesses, and community centers are invited to schedule a presentation or discussion. We enjoy helping groups find ways to be engaged in solving air quality while protecting their health.

Carpool Incentives with Snowbird and Protect Our Winters

We are excited to announce our newest partnership with Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort and Protect Our Winters (POW). Snowbird has launched the RIDE Program beginning this ski season. Reducing Individual Driving for the Environment, or RIDE, creates an incentive, reward, and education program to reduce single-occupancy vehicular use during the winter season. The program will serve as a new initiative to address the problem of CO2 emissions and traffic congestion in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Partnering with Protect Our Winters (POW), Breathe Utah, and the National Ski Area Association Climate Challenge (NSAA), Snowbird will focus on educating our guests and employees on the connection between a warming climate, Utah’s air quality challenges, and actions skiers and snowboarders can take to reduce their CO2emissions when traveling and recreating at Snowbird

Wallace Stegner Center

Breathe Utah is regularly invited to participate in the Wallace Stegner Center events at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law. We provide participants with information on how to actively participate in solving our State’s air quality challenges.

Citizen Science Research Project, A Collaboration with University of Utah

A research project, designed by Chemical Engineering Professor Kerry Kelly and colleagues, is studying air quality distribution in the Salt Lake Valley. The research team also hopes to better understand the best means to engage citizen scientists in air quality research. The project is deploying a 50-monitor network in the Salt Lake Valley. The monitors and web-based compilation are based on the Purple Air technology ( The research team is conducting this study because poor air quality has a significant impact on quality of life and yet we know relatively little about how it may vary geographically. We also hope to better understand the sources of poor air quality in our valley.

Air Quality Curriculum Supporting SEEd Standards
