Stacey Butler reporting Students at a Sugarhouse elementary school are asking for help locating valuable signs that vandals stole from a nature area.
Students at Hawthorne Elementary adopted the open land behind the Commons shopping area known as Hidden Hollow. For more than a decade, students have worked hard to return the area to it's natural splendor, marking significant spots with bronze plaques.
But recently vandals stole all but a few of the plaques.
Today students hung posters in the park asking for signs to be returned.
"Zoe, Hawthorne Elementary School: IT DOESN'T SO MUCH UPSET ME AS IT DOES DISAPPOINT ME, THAT PEOPLE WOULD JUST GO IN AND TAKE SOMETHING THAT ARE SO IMPORTANT TO SO MANY PEOPLE AND JUST RUIN IT."
If caught, the vandals face a misdemeanor. But Salt Lake City police say if the signs are returned safely they will not ask any questions.
