Stokes Nature Center on the move

The city of Logan, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and Stokes Nature Center, is working on a conceptual plan to redesign the area just east of the Second Dam Reservoir in Logan Canyon. The re-designed site will double the area available for public recreation and will provide additional parking just east of the existing buildings.Mayor Randy Watts is spearheading the project which he hopes will provide safer access to the River Trail as well as expanded public facilities. The Stokes Nature Center will become a cultural/education anchor at the new site. The new location will help the Nature Center draw attention to two of northern Utah’s most iconic natural features: Logan Canyon and Logan River. Director Holly Strand says she plans to boost the Center’s interpretative capacity and her staff is developing new exhibits to interpret Canyon features including the geology, history, wildlife and plant distributions. The city and Stokes Nature Center will share maintenance responsibilities. The project will take several years to complete due to renovation and fundraising needs.
