Jordan River Parkway Trail finished
We are so excited to see the completion of the Jordan River Parkway Trail. Runners, bikers, walkers, and everyone else can now get from Provo to Farmington on one continuous trail, spanning about 45 miles.

10 years ago Envision Utah led the Blueprint Jordan River effort to bring together 3 counties and 17 different municipalities to agree on a single blueprint for the entire Jordan River.

Through Envision Utah's help, the Jordan River Commission was formed and has since worked to implement projects identified in Blueprint Jordan River, including the Jordan River Parkway Trail.

Each city had their own individual plan for their stretch of the Jordan River, but the wonderful, connecting trail we have today shows what can happen when cities get together and collaborate. Way to go!

You can read more about the process and the trail here. We'll see you on the trail!
Utah kids need brain builders!
Did you know that 80 percent of brain development happens during the first 4 years of life? It's during those crucial early years that children build a foundation of learning that will last them their entire lives.

But they can't build that foundation alone—it's up to parents and caregivers to build their child's brain. Being a brain builder is an enormous responsibility, but it doesn't have to be scary or even take extra time—parents and caregivers already have what it takes!

That's where early learning app Daily Vroom comes in. Designed by experts with busy parents in mind, Daily Vroom sends daily brain-building tips that help parents and caregivers turn everyday moments into brain-building moments.

Envision Utah has been working to help parents across the state understand the importance of brain building and has been encouraging them to give Vroom a try. But we need your help!

You can help us spread the word. If you're a parent, download Daily Vroom and use it with your children. If you're not a parent, learn about early learning and Vroom and share your knowledge with any parents you do know.

Early learning is a crucial part of a child's education—it's up to all of us to ensure that every Utah child gets a learning foundation they can build on for life.
