Tooele County School District inherited property in the small mining town of Ophir, Utah, after the town disincorporated in 2017. With the aid of the Tooele County School District and the Tooele Education Foundation, MHTN Architects worked pro-bono providing design services and recommendations for the Ophir Canyon Education Center. This project supports the mission and vision of the Tooele County School District by providing students and staff an innovative place of wonder and inquiry to enrich and enhance their educational experience, while celebrating science and ecology along with local history and geography in the picturesque, natural setting of Ophir Canyon. MHTN provided design services and recommendations for center, creating an innovative place for outdoor learning and recreation. The center celebrates science and ecology, connecting students to open-air classrooms, educational buildings, wildlife wetlands, and an amphitheater.
