Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch International
Aug 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch International

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers learn how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about the birds and HawkWatch International’s mission and programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do have a time commitment for volunteers and ask they assist with some general bird care duties. If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, attend the orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HWI Education and Community Outreach Director.

Community Discussion Night: How to Protect Our Air, Land, and Water from Tar Sands Mining (and Refining), Together! @ Sprague Library
Aug 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Community Discussion Night: How to Protect Our Air, Land, and Water from Tar Sands Mining (and Refining), Together! @ Sprague Library

Join Peaceful Uprising for a community discussion on creating a just and healthy world by protecting our air from tar sands mining and refining. In Utah, tar sands mining could soon begin–for the first time in the U.S.–and the tar-like oil would be refined in North Salt Lake. Refining tar sands here would harm our air, and our health, even more than refining regular crude, making it a major climate justice issue. Join us to work on creating SOLUTIONS to this human health nightmare, while forging a resilient community that’s empowered to take action!

Can’t make it on August 28? Contact Melanie@PeacefulUprising to set up a discussion with your neighborhood or organization. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Community Discussion Night: Protecting Our Air from Tar Sands Refining @ Day Riverside Library
Aug 29 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Community Discussion Night: Protecting Our Air from Tar Sands Refining @ Day Riverside Library

Tar sands mining, and refining—one of the world’s dirtiest industries—affects some communities disproportionately. Tar sands refining has already begun in North Salt Lake, and if mining in Utah is allowed to proceed—for the first time in the U.S.—the refining will continue to increase on the Wasatch Front. Refinery-side communities in the Rose Park and North Salt Lake area already deal with some of the worst air quality on the nation on a daily basis. If you live there, you already know this. The question is, what can we do to protect our air from tar sands refining together?

Join Peaceful Uprising for a community discussion on creating a healthy and just world by protecting our air from tar sands refining. We’re working to create solutions to this human health nightmare, while forging a resilient community that’s empowered to take action!

Can’t make it on August 29th? Get in touch with Melanie@PeacefulUprising.org to arrange a discussion with your own neighborhood or organization! We look forward to talking with you.
