Let's Get Social

New merch just dropped! 
In celebrating a living memory of place we are releasing a t-shirt and stickers that highlight many cultures which are representative of local, continental and global languages found in this region. The design features Wasan (Blue Heron) and Ha’nii or A’nii (Beaver) who live in and along Pia Okwai (Big Flow/River, Utah’s ‘Jordan River’). The design of this t-shirt was created by Frances Ngo and also includes artistic representations of paa (water) to represent the okwai (river) along with several words for okwai in different languages.

T-shirts and stickers will debut at the Nature Center at Pia Okwai name change celebration on Saturday June 15. These designs will also be available soon in our Nature Store Gift Shop at Liberty Park!
