The Tooele Education Foundation has many wonderful programs to enhance teaching and learning for Tooele County Schools. I want to invite everyone to learn more about our foundation and what we have to offer. One of my primary roles at the Tooele Education Foundation will be Ophir Canyon programs. Ophir is a treasure in our county and has so much to offer residents of all ages.
We'd like to invite the community to come experience Ophir Canyon this fall with the annual Ophir Canyon Trail Ride. What better way is there to experience fall than on horseback in the beautiful Ophir Mountains! Saddle up with your own horse and join the Tooele Education Foundation for a trail ride in the canyon on Saturday, October 13th. The trail ride will begin at the Ophir Canyon Education Center and will last about three hours. Experienced guides, Shannon and Albert Zwahlen, will lead the group on trails through the scenic mountains above the town of Ophir. Riders will be treated to a chili lunch upon returning to the Ophir Canyon Education Center. Tickets are 10 dollars per rider with proceeds benefiting the FFA scholarship fund for Tooele County students.
