The Provo River Delta restoration project is moving right along

Brandon Green

The Provo River Delta restoration project has hit a milestone and is transitioning into new work having wrapped up excavating ponds and channels in the north half of the project.

Now, the project is working on creating a narrower corridor of sloping river channels in the south half. These sloping river channels help create a faster moving river zone habitat which will benefit native fish like the June sucker.

She loves our natural world and being part of wildlife research. Now, getting to communicate that kind of research to the UPR listeners through this position makes her love what she does even more. In her free time, you can find her outside on a trail with her partner Matt and her goofy pups Dodger and Finley. They love living in a place where there are year-round adventures to be had!
