Last year a handful of Hunter High students joined the Jordan River Commission and several organizations to restore a sliver of land in West Valley City. The result changed the landscape and the students themselves.
Hunter High School’s AVID, AP Biology, and Advanced Photography classes worked together to improve water quality, restore riparian habitat, inspire communities along the river, and document their work near a storm water detention pond near the Jordan River.
A new exhibit in the Granite Gallery at the Granite Education Center (2500 S. State Street) demonstrates what the students learned about the river’s challenges and how they responded through documentary arts.
The student hope the exhibit inspires others to continue what they started. Be sure to check it out!
