Alexis Kelner Conservation Award
In 1988, the Alexis Kelner Conservation Award was established to recognize those who have given distinguished service to the cause of Utah Conservation. The establishment of the awards was, in fact, a formalization of a trend started some years earlier for honoring individuals who had contributed significantly to the preservation and conservation of Utah’s public lands.
In November 2018, the WMC recognized the Corner Canyon Trails Foundation, which has been instrumental in promoting and protecting the open space areas of Draper and constructing an extensive network of multi-use hiking/biking/equestrian trails. The mission of the Foundation is “Making mountain adventures possible through pathways to the outdoors in the Corner Canyon and surrounding areas.” The WMC board recently approved a $5,000 grant to assist the Corner Canyon Trails Foundation in building the new "Phantom" hiking-only trail in the Ghost Falls area.
