Preserving and Protecting Y Mountain

Y Clean Up

Thanks to all the BYU students and volunteers who helped us kick off Earth Month at Y Mountain on April 8th. Led by Dr. Matthew Madsen, this conservation corps replaced invasive plants with native grasses grown in the BYU Life Sciences Greenhouse, enjoyed valley views, and learned about restoration ecology. Their efforts will decrease the risk of wildfire at the trailhead, curb erosion, and increase foraging opportunities and habitat cover for mule deer and other animal populations.
