PURPOSE

The Seven Creeks | Walk Series, co-hosted by the Let's Move! Outside, Center for the Living City, ArtsBridge America, and the Jordan River Commission, provides walking conversations along portions of the seven canyon creeks. Participants share stories, insights, visions, and any other relevant information with each other to explore ways to better manage, restore, cherish, and love our seven canyon creeks. Through urban interventions, participants visualizing these spots, calling for action through art, chalk, audio, and other forms of expression.
