In fall 2013, an exciting multi-phase restoration project will begin in Mill Creek Canyon. This canyon is located in the Wasatch Mountains, immediately east of the Millcreek communities in the Salt Lake Valley. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources will work with the U.S. Forest Service and other key partners over the next four years to:

  • Remove non-native fish and replace them with native Bonneville cutthroat trout
  • Restore the watershed and enhance habitat
  • Maintain safe public access

If you live in the Mill Creek area or you enjoy recreating in Mill Creek Canyon, you might have questions about what this effort means to you. The map above provides a quick overview of the project location and timelines.
