WEST JORDAN — After more than two years of construction, the Conservation Garden Park at Jordan Valley will open its education center to the public year-round.
The center is open free of charge.
The center, which has a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum certification, will provide space for classes and learning activities that promote wise water use and sustainable practices. The building will also be available to community groups for education and rental purposes.
To celebrate the completion of the building and its grand opening, the Conservation Garden Park is hosting Growing Together: A Party in the Garden Park on Saturday, Aug. 17, from 4-9 p.m. The free event is open to families and friends of the Garden.
The event will feature live entertainment including local bands; children’s games and activities; prizes; fresh, locally grown food available for purchase; and numerous booths with information about conservation, community events and educational opportunities.
