The Natural History Museum of Utah Introduces Explorer Corps
SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah. — Ever wondered what is unique about each of Utah’s 29 counties? The Natural History Museum of Utah is helping spotlight natural and cultural history wonders in each of them with the Natural History Explorer Corps. The summer-long challenge encourages Utahns and tourists to discover natural history in every county, spotlighting one unique landmark in each of the 29 Utah counties.
The challenge launched Memorial Day Weekend and will run through Labor Day. Custom markers have been placed in every county to celebrate an iconic natural or cultural history location in that area, showcasing Utah’s diversity and richness. All summer long, Utahns and visitors will be encouraged to seek out the markers and explore what makes each county—and Utah—so special.
“Summit County’s historic marker indicates the Saber-Toothed Cat paleontology site discovered in Silver Creek in the 1960s. The marker commemorating this discovery can be found on the front lawn on the north side of the Kimball Junction Branch of the Summit County Library under the tornado sculpture.” — Joe Frazier, Summit County Historian
