Dancers are given opportunities to improvise, engage in creative problem-solving, and grow in cognitive, social, and emotional ways as they interact in each class. All classes have live accompaniment by experienced and engaging musicians to expose dancers to a variety of musical genres. Ballet and hip hop classes are also offered. Satellite creative dance classes take place in Bountiful, Sandy, Ogden, Park City, South Jordan and Brigham City.

Why Birds Matter: Conserving the World’s Birds and Their Ecosystem Services @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Jan 26 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
Why Birds Matter: Conserving the World’s Birds and Their Ecosystem Services @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

Birds are the best known major group of organism. They provide critical ecological functions and ecosystem services, ranging from creating soil to shaping primate behavior. Global analyses of the world first avian ecology database, with 1.5 million data points covering all bird species, provide answers to important questions in avian macroecology, conservation biology and biogeography. Global change, in particular climate change, habitat loss and introduced species are increasingly threatening new avian taxa that have been considered common and safe from extinction until recently. We identified many extinction-prone and understudied avian taxa that should be targeted by intensive research and conservation efforts. There is an urgent need to understand the ecological consequences of bird declines, which will lead to consequent declines in ecosystem services. With nearly 11,000 species, birds are one of the most diverse groups of ecosystem service providers. Birds are conspicuous in many habitats, occur worldwide, and are ecologically diverse. Birds’ ecological roles and ecosystem services are critical to the health of many ecosystems and to human well-being. Birds consume pests, pollinate flowers, disperse seeds, scavenge carrion, cycle nutrients, and modify the environment in ways that benefit other species. Yet, the ecological importance of birds and the economic value of their services are not widely appreciated. Studying birds’ ecological functions and ecosystem services enables us to understand the environmental consequences, of bird declines and extinctions, for ecosystems and for the people that benefit from birds’ services. We need to do more to communicate these findings to the public and policy makers, thereby increasing public support for the conservation of birds, their habitats, and birds’ ecosystem services.
