Arrive by 8:45 am on May 12, 2016. Work will begin at 9 am.
The project will take place at 13130 Vista Station Blvd., Draper, UT 84020 in Salt Lake County. Parking is available in the south parking lot of the ebay building. Volunteers will meet in the parking lot for further instructions.
Please join the Utah Division of Forestry Fire and State Lands and Utah Open Lands for the Trailside Conservation Day at the annual Get Into The River Festival. Volunteers will be asked to remove garbage from the Jordan River Parkway and river corridor and remove any invasive species by digging or pulling them out and bagging them in provided trash bags. Volunteers may also be asked to spread native grass seed and wildflowers in bare areas or help protect trees to prevent deer and beaver damage by wrapping them with wire fencing. Volunteers will learn why they are cleaning the river, what people have done and are doing to restore the river, and how the goals of ecosystem restoration are planned to be accomplished. At the end of the day, volunteers will learn the basics of Jordan River Parkway metrics and etiquette and, native flora and fauna on the site, and a knowledge of Jordan River-based ecological restoration practices.
