Preserve

The Galena – Soónkahni Preserve comprises approximately 250 acres adjacent to the Jordan River in Draper City, Salt Lake County. The preserve includes approximately 100 acres of riparian and wetland habitat on the east side of the Jordan River and approximately 150 acres of drier upland which host bars and oxbows. The paved Jordan River Parkway Trail runs through the property along the approximate edge of the riparian area, bordering the unused Galena Canal.

 

The Galena – Soónkahni Preserve includes an archaeological site of tremendous importance historically: dwellings and artifacts ranking among the oldest known in Utah and are valued very highly by many people, including Native American people whose ancestral lands included this area.
