Sprucing Up Slate Canyon

Slate Canyon Plants

To celebrate Earth Day, BYU joined Conserve Utah Valley, Provo City, and Utah Valley University—about 400 volunteers in all—for a day of service at nearby Slate Canyon. The April 24th project included landscaping, graffiti removal, litter collection, and plant and wildlife identification—with a little help from mobile apps and friendly staff from BYU's Bean Life Science Museum.
