Salinas River Day Celebration

Running 175 miles, the Salinas river is an upside-down river. There, present, supporting the whole valley, but hard to see and acknowledge by human eyes. Its existence has been suppressed by design, hidden behind fences, absorbed by sprinkles, and disconnected from its plains. This event celebrates the Salinas River and invites the community to relate with it, immersing themselves in its nature. The goal is to spend the day, from 9 am to 3 pm, in a field trip that includes three different locations along the river where participants will have the opportunity to learn from experts about hydrology, ecology, and alternative forms of river management focused on nature-based solutions and environmental justice. At the end of the field trip we will have a short workshop modeling the river in the sand to understand movements of water and sediments, and share visions and desires for the river. The event is free and transportation, snacks and materials will be provided.

Volunteers will camp for 2, 3 or 4 nights (depending on preference) learning about land management on some of Utah's most beautiful landscapes. Our crew will travel far and wide across the West Desert assessing and remediating vehicle and camping compliance. We will work to protect native vegetation, animal habitat and the ecological integrity of vast landscapes. Tasks will vary by need and may include: sign installation, raking and picking, and team-carrying boulders and trees. There are jobs for all people of all abilities!
