Save the Salt Coalition
For over six decades, the land has been managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Unfortunately, nearly five decades of BLM neglect led to the depletion of millions of tons of salt. The BSF is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated as an “Area of Critical Environmental Concern.”
The Save the Salt Coalition (STS) was founded in 1989 by racers, businesses and community members. Its mission is to protect the Bonneville Salt Flats and to promote its history and motorsports legacy. To assist in this effort, the “Save the Salt Foundation” was formed as the nonprofit entity to collect money for the sole purpose of restoring the BSF. The STS Coalition has also partnered with the “Utah Alliance,” formed in 2014 to provide expertise and connections within Utah and Nevada. The collaboration allows experts within the groups to undertake specific roles and projects. Major land speed race sanctioning organizations are members of both the Coalition and Alliance.
Salt is now being pumped onto the salt flats every year and other forms of additional replenishment are being pursued. However, to ensure success, the racing performance industry and land speed enthusiasts must also join in the effort to return more salt to the BSF.
