Introduction: By taking this virtual field trip you can learn more about the natural history of native plants and animals which live along our streams or riparian areas here in Utah. This introduction to the area can be used before visiting Hidden Hollow. Information found here can be used for contining efforts to properly manage the area and to restore the original wildlife back into Hidden Hollow. Ecological restoration projects such as this one are beginning all over the courtry. This project has tried to use natural history information about a few of the common, riparian or streamside organisms which have important educational and ecological value for future restoration use here and in other places.
