Log Haven owner recognized for conservation efforts
Margo Provost, the owner of Log Haven Restaurant, was recognized recently for helping to restore Bonneville cutthroat trout into Mill Creek Canyon. Provost's company, Flying Cloud, is the owner of the private land on which Log Haven is located. Provost allowed the stream and lake at Log Haven to be treated to remove non-native fish, according to officials with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. A barrier also was modified to allow for fish passage and stream bank stabilization. Native Bonneville cutthroat trout will be restored to the area in the fall, according to DWR.
