RIDE ON Utah Presents Second Service Project at Rockport State Park


RIDE ON Utah would like to continue the success of the service project completed at Jordanelle State Park back in June for National Get Outdoors Day.  Rockport State Park will be hosting a service project on August 24, 2013 with RIDE ON Utah. Rockport is a beautiful park that is popular for camping, boating, hiking, fishing, sailing, bird watching, and paddle boarding. The park is located a convenient 45 minutes away from the Salt Lake Valley up Interstate 80. Rockport is a prime spot to visit especially for visitors who also spend time in the Uinta Mountains. Tread Lightly! staff and volunteers will be meeting at the Highland Day Use Area Pavilion before beginning the service project. Once the service project is completed lunch and refreshments will be offered.  The project will go from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM.Image Entrance into the park is free of charge for those who choose to come volunteer. This is a great way to spend some time outdoors at one of Utah’s fantastic state parks. Come join us help Tread Lightly! educate and serve Utah’s outdoor recreationists.

As always, remember to follow the Tread Lightly! principles and educate yourself and others about where you plan to recreate and enjoy Utah’s outdoors.
