      Jordan River Restoration Project

      The Jordan River connects Utah Lake to the Great Salt Lake wetlands, carving ground through the Salt Lake Valley. As an urban waterway it faces unique problems and provides vital services. It is a habitat for fish, deer, beaver, and fox offering water, food, and refuge from the surrounding urban areas. It is also an important connection to nature for those living in the surrounding areas

      Long loved and long used, it has recently been acknowledged the Jordan River needs a little help in getting back to its former glory. You can join Utah’s Hogle Zoo and The Jordan River Commission in helping it get there by joining us for our Jordan River conservation and restoration events. From May-December we will host monthly outings to different portions of the river to perform a variety of conservation and restoration projects from tree planting, to water trail maintenance, to removal of invasive weeds. These are family friendly events and a great way to get outside and become more familiar with our unique and beautiful urban river. If you have questions about these events please contact our Conservation Action Coordinator, Tori Bird, at

      October 17th 10AM-12 PM Join us to wrap up a restoration project at the Big Cottonwood Confluence. We will be fencing previously planted trees, planting understory plants, and spreading seed for monarch friendly milkweed plants.

      November 14th 10 AM-1 PM show the environment your gratitude by planting trees for a restoration project along the river. Location TBD.

      December 12th 10 AM-1 PM While the cold might be tough on us, it is a great time to get trees in the ground. This event is a perfect way to wrap up the year in conservation and restoration. Location TBD.

      Sign up to join us for these events on the Zoo’s website at
