Salt Lake City, UT (October 21, 2007)- TreeUtah, a Salt Lake City-based nonprofit group, announced Friday it plans to plant nearly 9,000 seedlings this fall along the Jordan River in South Jordan. After 10 years of planning, work has begun to reroute the Willow Creek stream channel to its native meander along the east side of the Jordan River near 10600 South. TreeUtah will be filling in the disturbed area with native willows, cottonwoods, grasses and shrubs.
The organization is seeking hundreds of volunteers to help with the project, which is being held in conjunction with National NeighborWoods Month and Salt Lake County’s “A Million Trees for a Million People” initiative. To volunteer for TreeUtah, call 801-364-2122.
