The Jordan River Commission is working with the City of West Jordan to remove invasive vegetation from a 20-acre area near 9000 South to prepare it for a major restoration project. 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.
This project is available to all volunteers and is also eligible for Dedicated Hunter Credit. DH credit will be given for all time spent on the site completing projects, and for participating in volunteer leader trainings.
Equipment: Shovels, leather gloves, thick-soled boots, and loppers.
