Salt Lake City, UT (October 26, 2007)- TreeUtah, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to tree planting, stewardship and education, said it plans to plant nearly 9,000 seedlings this fall along the Jordan River Restoration site in South Jordan. This ambitious endeavor is associated with TreeUtah’s participation in a national month-long celebration, National NeighborWoods Month.
After 10 years of planning, construction has begun to re-route the Willow Creek stream channel to its native meander along the east side of the Jordan River, just south of 10600 South. Immediately following the completion of the construction, which is to be finished soon, TreeUtah, along with hundreds of community volunteers, will begin planting the disturbed area with native willows, cottonwoods, and other wetland and upland shrubs species.
Multiple dates have been set for volunteer plantings, and TreeUtah needs help planting. For more information, call 801-364-2122.
