William Hasket (Bill) Levitt
2/18/1917 ~ 12/29/2009

“Peace and powder snow”


Mayor Levitt helped found Friends of Alta (originally The Alta Defense Fund) in 1981. Mayor Levitt’s long-standing advisory role with Friends of Alta helped guide the organization to protect the environment of Alta, while still allowing supportive economic activity such as skiing, hiking and recreating in and around Alta. This fellowship is an opportunity for selected individuals to work with our Executive Director for three to nine months. The fellowship will focus on how Mayor Levitt’s standards of excellence, intelligence and integrity in public process, and Friends of Alta’s conservation efforts can work together to protect Alta’s environment and unique character. Each fellowship opportunity will be unique and is open to students or individuals wishing to further their knowledge and experience in conservation, local government, and dynamic communities.

Fellowship tasks may involve the following:

  • Conservation Easement Program

  • Environmental Studies

  • Event Planning

  • Community Outreach

  • Research

  • Individual proposals will also be considered


We don't have any current openings at this time. Please come back later to review potential openings. 


2021 BLF Eliza Van Wetter.jpg

Eliza was born and raised in Golden, Colorado. Enjoying the natural world has been a passion of hers since an early age. While new to the great state of Utah, she has loved exploring the variety of landscapes that make Utah so unique. After spending a winter skiing at Alta, she fell in love with the vibrant community that calls Little Cottonwood Canyon home. As a recent college graduate from Whitman College, Eliza is eager to put her Environmental Studies/ Geology degree to use. Eliza will be working for Friends of Alta this summer as the Bill Levitt Fellow. She is excited and enthusiastic for this opportunity to learn and grow her skills but most importantly to help protect and share the beautiful landscape that is Alta
