A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Ski With An Arborist
By Erika Kazi and Ian Peisner
In coordination with Tree Utah, Brighton will be offering free tours of our resort dedicated to educating the public about the history and future of our forests. During the tour we will investigate the native species that create our favorite tree runs and learn about how these beloved trees form essential habitat for our furry neighbors.
It is equally important for Brighton to create and implement projects within our infrastructure to reduce our impact on the environment as it is to share our beloved resort with the public – all aspects of it including the natural landscape.
Why Take a Tour with an Arborist?
The trees at Brighton resort provide ample fun turns, homes for our local animals, shade from the sun, and a carbon sink for some of the emissions produced by the resort and surrounding communities. Much of the property is considered a part of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
In the tour with Tree Utah, guests can learn about the ecosystem, the trees and plants that make up the community, and engage in discussion on the past and future of this landscape. Also, learn about how you can help in Tree Utah and Brighton’s efforts to preserve our amazing forest!
