Ecology and Historical Archaeology of Great Salt Lake @ Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium, Westminster College
May 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Ecology and Historical Archaeology of Great Salt Lake @ Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium, Westminster College |  |  |

Since the shorelines of Lake Bonneville receded, Great Salt Lake has featured prominently in the natural and cultural history of North America and beyond. Millions of birds rely on the productive environment for breeding, nesting, and refueling during migration, feasting on the ample food supplies in and around the lake. Humans possess a close connection to the lake as well, from early Paleoindians hunting mammoths on its marshy shores, to Fremont villages and agricultural fields nestled at its shores. More recently, the lake has been seen as a place of recreation and exploitation. The salty brine featured as a major recreational draw, supporting several different bathing resorts from Black Rock, to Lakeside, to Saltair (I, II, and III). Capitalists also saw the lake as a much more lucrative endeavor for exploitation through salt evaporation, brine shrimp harvesting and even market hunting. We all, birds included, have a stake in the future of Great Salt Lake.

History nerd Chris Merritt (Utah State Historic Preservation Office) and Great Salt Lake nerd Jaimi Butler (biologist and Coordinator of Great Salt Lake Institute) will talk about modern research collaboration attempts to bridge the entire gap of Great Salt Lake’s multi-thousand year human-environment interactions, and spur a new century of engagement for a new generation of lake lovers. In other words, we will talk about “Old Crap, Bird Crap and Learned Crap”.

Collector’s Book Salon: Tony Weller @ Weller Book Works
May 25 @ 6:30 pm
Collector's Book Salon: Tony Weller @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

On May 25, Tony Weller will discuss 17 reasons books might increase in value. Tony has sold books at Sam Weller Books, renamed Weller Book Works in 2012, since the 1970s. In a massive bookstore with many topics, Tony was awed by the knowledge of older booksellers before becoming overwhelmed by what seemed to be an ever-increasing and insurmountable amount of book information. In the 1980s, he started carefully listing and defining the traits that caused a few books to appreciate in value. The list started with roughly a dozen factors and grew to 17 by the mid-1990s. Half of them are quite uncommon. Two of them account for a majority of collected books. More importantly, the analysis becomes an examination of human desire and the reasons a few desirable books grow in value because of inadequate supply. Collectors navigate by personal interest. A clever bookseller adds clients’ interest to his own.

Meet book collectors and unique thinkers at Weller Book Works Collectors’ Book Salon. Glasses are filled and socializing begins at 6:30. Collector’s Chats begin at 7:15.

Connecting the West – Wildlife Corridors & Mountain Lions @ Patagonia Outlet
May 25 @ 7:00 pm
Connecting the West – Wildlife Corridors & Mountain Lions @ Patagonia Outlet |  |  |

Denise Peterson of the Mountain Lion Foundation speaks on the importance of wildlife corridors and highway crossing structures.
We are living in a highly urbanized world and, while development may not act as a significant barrier for humans, wildlife is challenged with learning how to adapt and survive in an ever-changing landscape. As suitable habitat diminishes and the landscape becomes more and more fragmented, it is crucial that we to connect these habitat islands if wildlife is to thrive. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used to identify suitable habitat patches and potential corridors for wildlife movement so that effective wildlife crossing structures can be built to ensure safe passage across roadways for both people and animals. Presented by Wasatch Packtivists and Western WIldlife Conservancy. Free and open to the public.

Join us Saturday, May 26, from 2 – 4 PM, as Andrew Baldwin signs DESERT GUARDIAN and RAPTOR CANYON!

DESERT GUARDIAN: Ethan’s world turns upside-down when he slips off the edge of red-rock cliffs into a world of twisting canyons, ruthless looters, and midnight murders. Saved by a moonshining hermit, Ethan must join a whitewater rafting group and make his way back to civilization. But someone in the canyons is killing to protect their illegal dig for ancient treasures. Ethan must learn who he can and cannot trust, survive the harsh desert, and unravel the mysterious murders. The fight of his life begins now…

RAPTOR CANYON: An impromptu murder leads a hermit named Relic to an unlikely set of dinosaur petroglyphs and swindlers using the unique rock art to turn a pristine canyon in to a high-end tourist trap. When attorney, Wyatt, and his boss travel to the site to approve the next phase of financing, Wyatt learns the truth about their unorthodox role in the project. A corrupt security chief runs Relic and Wyatt off of the site and the unusual pair must endure each other while fleeing through white-water rapids, remote gorges, and hidden caverns. Faye, who shares covert ties with the treasured site, catalyzes their desperate plan to fight back and to recast the fate of Raptor Canyon.
