The Jordan River Commission is working with the local governments and communities along the Jordan River Corridor to provide a forum for coordination of planning, restoration, and responsible development along the Jordan River corridor. This area provides critical habitat for a variety of wildlife including deer, fox, and many species of migratory birds and waterfowl. The area has been heavily infested with invasive Russian olive, tamarisk, thistle, hoary cress, and other invasive
vegetation. These non-native plants provide very little habitat for wildlife and aggressively crowd out native plant species.
• Installation of native plant species in restoration pilot plots,
• Installation and maintenance of fencing,
• Digging out invasive thistle plants,
• Helping to lead groups of other volunteers on the sites after going through a short training,
• Removal of garbage, debris piles, and useless fencing.
