The Seven Creeks | Walk Series, in partnership with the Center for the Living City, ArtsBridge America, and the Jordan River Commission, engages local residents in walking conversations and collaborative action along buried and impaired reaches of the seven canyon creeks. Participants observe and share stories, insights, and visions to explore ways to better manage, restore, and love these waterways. By combining elements of ecological restoration, art and expression, and the spoken word, this program seeks to build community support and awareness to uncover and restore our buried and impair creeks.
