Film Screening: Bugs! Will eating insects save our Earth?

Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists, and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. It would seem that insects are the new superfood that will fix all our problems of global food security. This event is brought to you by Park City Film Series in partnership with Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter. Park City Library - Santy Auditorium 1255 Park Avenue Park City, UT 84060

Wasatch Comic Con

One of our tenants, The Nerd Store, is putting on Wasatch Comic Con on April 27th & 28th. It is a Con for Creators meaning the people who created the comics and stories we love. Kevin Eastman is a highlight of the event and he created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We are expecting between 3000-5000 people. It is going to be a great event and we would love some positive exposure for the city of West Valley if you’d like to stop by. http://wasatchcon.com/
