A coalition of environmental groups has proposed the development of a series of nature park along the Jordan River corridor all the way across Salt Lake City. The plan is called “Nature in the City.”
To learn about this plan residents of the Fair Park, Rose Park, Jordan Meadows or Westpoint neighborhoods are invited to tour the river corridor with expert guides in a series of three FREE bike and float trips down the river. You’ll learn a lot about the river and have a great time meeting your west side neighbors!
For more information go to www.natureinthecityslc.org and to register for any of these trips contact Ray Wheeler at firstname.lastname@example.org
October 8, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm: 12-mile bike trip all the way across the city on the Jordan River Parkway Trail, with multiple stops to explore open space and parks. We’ll all use our own bikes and our own cars for the shuttle from the end point at about 2800 North, Redwood Road, back to the starting point in the parking area east of the Redwood Community Center (3060 Lester Street, West Valley City.)
October 15, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm: 12-mile bike trip all the way across the city on the Jordan River Parkway Trail, with multiple stops to explore open space and parks. This trip will end at a river party at 1800 North hosted by the West View quarterly newspaper to celebrate its fall issue devoted to the Jordan River. Food, music, and games for kids at the party.
October 22, 9:00 am to 2:00 pm: “multimodal” tour of the Jordan River corridor with expert guides who will teach you boating skills, . Any number of people can join us for the bike trip, and up to at least a dozen people on the canoe trip (we are limited by the number of boats.) Float trip participants will be shuttled back to their cars at 1700 South in the S’PLORE van, and their bikes will be guarded by a watchman during the float trip. You’ll not only learn about our plan for the river corridor, but will also learn paddling and river running safety skills from the professinoal river guides of S’PLORE.
October 29, 9:00 am to 2:00 pm: the itinerary, schedule and activities for this second “mulimodal” (bike/float) trip will be identical to those of the Oct. 22 trip described above.
