TREE PLANTING

Saturday May 4 

We’ve reached the end of the Spring Planting season, but watch this space to look for more information on future planting opportunities in the Fall or next year.  

With the recently completed tree planting, volunteers have now replaced over half of the 250+ trees lost in the 2020 windstorm.

About Us

The main goals of the Friends group are to advocate for the cemetery, to engage the public in its history and upkeep, and to help identify and secure funding sources to address some of the needs in the Cemetery’s Master Plan, which was adopted by the City Council in October 2020.

Join the cause

The Friends group works closely with the City’s Public Lands division to identify a number of future volunteer activities to ensure the longevity of this local and national treasure.

A Non-Profit Group

Friends Of The Salt Lake City Cemetery was formed as a non-profit 501c3 organization to help Salt Lake City with managing the largest municipal cemetery in the United States. The cemetery dates back to the mid-1800's when 120 acres were set aside as a permanent city cemetery. The first burial was September 27, 1848.
