Rocky Mountain Power tree crews and Utah Conservation Field Corps began removing Russian Olive and other invasive trees and vegetation along the Jordan River Monday near 8600 South to restore five acres of riparian habitat. The Jordan River Commission was recently awarded $50,000 from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to return the area to a naturally functioning floodplain. Monday marked the first on-the-ground work of West Jordan city's Big Bend Habitat Restoration Project, which will eventually restore 70 acres of habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife.
