Arrive by 8:45 am on May 12, 2016. Work will begin at 9 am.
The project will take place at 1040 South 900 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84104 in Salt Lake County. Park at the southwest parking lot at Jordan Park off of 900 West or Fremont Avenue. Volunteers will gather by the SW Pavilion for further direction.
Please join Salt Lake City 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 the goals of ecosystem restoration. At the end of the day, volunteers will learn about the Jordan River Parkway, native flora and fauna on the site, and Jordan River-based restoration.
