Have you ever seen a 120-foot cutthroat trout? You will on October 22 if you come to 2065 E. 2100 South in Salt Lake City. The businesses of The Neighborhood Hive are providing the canvas for a massive wildlife mural of a Bonneville cutthroat trout, the state fish of Utah, on their building. Mural artist Chris Peterson is working with the Utah Wildlife Federation to create the artwork portraying fish that swam in the creeks of the area near the building when pioneers arrived in the valley. Join us from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for family fun including face painting, fly casting lessons and fly tying with expert tyers. There will be food trucks and a presentation at 3 p.m. announcing a major effort to share wildlife art across the state. We will also be holding an art contest with cash prizes. Show us what wildlife means to you and your family with paintings, pictures, essays, sculptures or anyway you choose. Divisions include elementary/middle school, high school and open. Prizes and a silent auction will take place for things like fly fishing rods, float trips, gift baskets from local businesses and more. Speakers will include teachers and students from nearby elementary schools talking about the Trout in the Classroom program, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources fisheries biologists talking about the Bonneville cutthroat trout and local anglers talking about the value of native species.
