Urban Weed Pluck

Do you enjoy the Bonneville Shoreline Trail for hiking, dog-walking, mountain biking, trail running, checking out impressive views of the Salt Lake Valley and more? Urban Habitat is working to remove invasive weeds like dyer's woad and myrtle spurge from the Wasatch foothills. Removing invasive plants creates more habitat for native species. Help us keep this area beautiful. Join us for a weed pluck!

Meeting location is Red Butte Canyon.


Coal Black Sky, Utah from Space

May 18 - July 27 Photo exhibit, Utah from high altitude balloon. Emily Chipping takes us on a journey to discover and experience space. From a self-engineered space flight, she launched a weather balloon with multiple cameras to approximately 90,000 feet above the Earth. Images depict our landscape recorded from flight: The Earth's electric blue horizon, sweeping Uintah views, Green River bends and turns and ever changing cloud cover. Both isolating and awe inspiring, we are adrift in the black sky. As astronaut Mike Massimino said, "We’re out here spinning in all this chaos. The Earth is a planet, the Earth is a spaceship and we’re all space travelers." Join us for a reception June 2nd 4-6PM Marriott Library, 1st floor exhibition walls.

The Wildflowers Around Us

The deserts and mountains of Utah’s canyon country, and beyond contain wildflowers of many colors. In fact, flowers of all colors in the visible spectrum can be seen, if you know where to look. In a twist on this theme, some plants produce flowers that display more than one color in each individual flower. These plants are fewer and father between, and some of their flower-color combinations are unexpected. Joel Tuhy, the Conservancy in Utah's Director of Conservation Science and botanist will enlighten you with colorful and fascinating facts about wildflowers around us.
