The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources awarded Trout Unlimited a $17,000 grant for preliminary work on a Weber River design study in Morgan County from the diversion dam at Como Springs into Morgan City, including the stretch of the river near Riverside Park.
The study is slated to begin in October when water levels are lower to fund preliminary conceptual designs for river restoration and will likely involve survey work of the waterway.  
“The project is a cooperative one across the watershed that will benefit fish, wildlife, anglers, recreational water users and agricultural producers,” said Paul Burnett with Trout Unlimited, a nationwide nonprofit organization aiming to conserve and protect cold water habitat.

Just ask the 3,000 to 4,000 people who raft or tube down the Weber River in Morgan County each year.  Rafting the Weber River in Morgan County is a fun way to see the valley and a relaxing afternoon in the sun.  It’s a great activity for families or organizations, and one of the 50 things to do in Morgan County.

November found local Daughters of Utah Pioneers camps holding monthly meetings around the valley.  Morgan Company DUP was established in April of 1918, and has now grown to include six camps, namely: Hardscrabble, Mt. Joy, Mountain View, Peterson Creek, South Morgan and Weber River.  In the beginning, Porterville Camp (the first camp organized) and Peterson Camp were part of the company but have since either been combined with other camps or otherwise dissembled.
