Hello everyone!

I'm trying to compile information on the ecosystem of Utah Valley, Utah in the intermountain west. I'm reading Edible Forest Gardens, and while I like what I'm reading, I have the nagging feeling I need to study my native ecosystems a bit more. I've found a couple resources that discuss the flora, but very little discussing the whole ecosystem or fauna. I'm not necessarily looking for you to write a book here, but if I could get a nudge toward some books or articles, that would be delightful.

Hi, Kyle

I have never been to Utah, except years ago we visited the "Four Corner Monument" while in Colorado.  There you can visit four states by just standing where the four states meet. Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah.

What I like to do when I am in a new area is to observe what is around me.  What animals live there, what plants grow there, etc.

I find it fascinating to learn the different names of new plants when I try to ID them.

I am hoping some of the members will be able to answer your questions.

I found a beautiful pie. And a tiny ad:
