Emigration Creek

Emigration Creek

Emigration Creek was the route the Mormon pioneers followed as they entered the Salt Lake Valley in July, 1847 down to their first encampment at what is now approximately 5th East and 17th South. Historically known for class competitions and tug-of-war across the water, the creek now provides a peaceful getaway for faculty, staff and students to read, study and enjoy. Trails and native plants have been added by biology professors and their classes in recent years in an effort to preserve Emigration Creek's natural habitat and provide a unique classroom-outside-the-classroom experience for science students.
