Ty’s Garden – In memory of the life and work of Dr. Ty Harrison.
(From utahstories.com) A special unveiling took place on October 11 of a monument to a man who touched countless lives, and had more titles than the letters in his name.
The eastern edge of Hidden Hollow Nature Preserve in Sugar House was officially renamed and dedicated to Dr. Ty Harrison, Emeritus Professor of Biology at Westminster College, an environmentalist, naturalist, farmer, historian, author, activist, musician, landscape designer, and an educator. In 1997, Dr. Harrison participated in creating a master plan for the Hidden Hollow Natural Area, with an ecological inventory of the plant and animal species in the nature preserve. He died in 2017, only months after designing and supervising a habitat restoration project in the portion that has now been renamed “Ty’s Garden” in his honor.
