Help save our precious foothills from the encroaching noxious weeds, learn about the ecology, classification, and diversity of plants and wildlife in our ecosystem and meet great people.  Participation in events with Urban Habitat is voluntary for improving plant habitat in the urban-wildland interface in the foothills of Salt Lake Valley. For participation on the weed plucks we require gloves, closed-toed footwear, long pants, a University release form, and water. We also encourage participants to bring long-sleeved shirts, shade hats, sunscreen, and a snack.

Meeting destination for the group will be determined prior to each event as notified through the groups distribution email list the Urban Habitat Website and our Facebook Page.

Guest Author Mikey Brooks

Ten-year-old twins Ethan and Emmy’s parents have never told their kids what they do for a living. Then just before Halloween, Ethan, Emmy, and their best friend Jax discover a HUGE secret: could their parents actually be . . . witch hunters? Meanwhile at school, a new team of glamorous lunch ladies arrives on the scene, serving meals that taste way too good to come from a school cafeteria. There’s only one logical explanation: they’re witches, and the meals they serve are spiked with a dangerous potion! Why have witches come to Roosevelt Elementary? Ethan and Emmy have only one option if they want to save their school and find their parents: become witch hunters themselves. Join us Saturday afternoon, April 29th, for a release party for Mikey Brooks' new book, The W.H.O. Files: Potions in the Pizza, featuring a special storytime reading, book signing, activities, and even some snacks! We'll start at 1 p.m.
