Event is free with registration.
Register here for a $2 ride from SLC (includes park entry) on a chartered bus departing at 12:30 pm from the North Temple Trax Station.
If you come in your own vehicle, state park fee ($15 per vehicle) for access to Antelope Island will still apply. Please plan for extra travel time. Dress warmly for outside! Bring a blanket to warm up the cold bench.

Join us for the third annual reading of irreplaceable, a collective praise poem devoted to Great Salt Lake. The poem is a prayer for the full restoration of the lake and an homage to all the species she sustains. The work is ever-swelling and contains over 400 voices.

This year, poets from Bear River, the Weber River, and the Jordan River will join their voices to create a chorus of songs from along the watershed. Youth poets will bring their particular witness to the thousands of pelicans recently exiled from Gunnison Island. Our reading will also feature special guest, Lisa Bickmore, Utah's current Poet Laureate.

Every word we read and sing will be presented directly to Great Salt Lake as an offering of love and devotion for our imperiled sacred lake.
