    Hi Roger, Were you able to say anything about the importance of the Great Salt Lake to migratory birds and how plans to dam the Bear River will affect that, as well as the dumping of mercury and selenium from Kennecott and pollution from other industries. The lake is essential to many species of birds as they migrate through our area.

    Good program, thanks.
