Donate to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Although The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah will not be having their annual wildlife baby shower, they can still use your support in their amazing work. Feel free to drop off donations and help them continue to rescue and rehabilitate Utah animals. For more information go to www.wrcnu.org or call 801-814-7888.

Pack it in, Pack it out

We have an abundance of trails and outdoor recreation in the Ogden Area, and leaving your picnic in the middle of a trail is a big no-no. If you pack in goodies, make sure that you pack out the empty containers.  Because not everyone is aware of this rule, I like to hike with an extra bag to pick up any clutter I do stumble across on the trail. It’s a green habit to pick up and Mother Nature will thank you for it by giving you some good karma.

And last but not least, be part of #Wild4Ogden, our part in the Pledge for the Wild campaign. We are excited to have joined other outdoor recreation and wilderness communities to promote responsible tourism and build awareness around opportunities to give back to the wild places in our iconic mountain town. Whether a traveler or a local, there is always ways to give back and assist those organizations that help take care of these amazing places.
