Coal Pollution: What You Can Do About It (A Panel Discussion) @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library, Main Auditorium
Apr 1 @ 7:00 pm
Coal Pollution: What You Can Do About It (A Panel Discussion) @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library, Main Auditorium | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

A Panel Discussion: Utah’s coal plants belch pollution into our skies and profoundly affect the airsheds of the entire four corners region. From contributing to global warming, to impacting health, and obscuring some of the state’s most impressive vistas and impacting rural tourist economies, there’s hardly an aspect of our lives that these coal plants don’t touch.

In the coming months, we have a unique opportunity to limit these emissions and demand stricter pollution controls from regulators.

Join HEAL Utah, The Utah Chapter, Sierra Club and our panel of experts to learn more about these coal plants and some upcoming opportunities to limit their lung busting, toxic emissions.

Restoring the Colorado River: A New Perspective @ Dumke Auditorium – University of Utah Museum of Fine Arts
Apr 1 @ 7:30 pm
Restoring the Colorado River: A New Perspective @ Dumke Auditorium – University of Utah Museum of Fine Arts | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Please join us on Wednesday, April 1st for a provocative lecture from Dan Beard, former Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation and author of the new book, “Deadbeat Dams: Why We Should Abolish the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Tear Down Glen Canyon Dam.”

Beard reveals the desperate need to change western water policies and exposes the public to the lack of common sense, corruption, and utter waste of taxpayers’ money that he witnessed over a long government career spanning three decades. The faults of the present system of federally assisted water management efforts are amply detailed, and an agenda for reform is provided that can be used as ammunition by a new generation of water reformers.

Rainbow Bridge and Navajo Mountain Hiking Adventure with Canyonlands Field Institute @ Canyonlands Field Institute
Apr 27 all-day
Rainbow Bridge and Navajo Mountain Hiking Adventure with Canyonlands Field Institute @ Canyonlands Field Institute | Moab | Utah | United States

Join Moab-based Canyonlands Field Institute and hike and camp with horse pack support on the traditional pilgrimage route to Rainbow Bridge, the earths largest natural bridge, and sacred place to the Navajo culture. This is a five day, five night trip that begins and ends in Bluff, Utah. Participants carry only light packs while Navajo guide Eric Atene’s pack horses travel separately and carry our sleeping and other personal gear, food and kitchen. The trip begins with motel orientation, then day hiking at Navajo Mountain and one night in a traditional Navajo hogan as guests of Eric and family. You’ll spend three nights on the trail where you’ll encounter an abundance of wildflowers and striking views of sandstone fins and domes. The hike ends at Lake Powell where you’ll board a boat and travel to Hall’s Crossing. From there a CFI van takes you back to Bluff. Be one of very few visitors to make this traditional pilgrimage from the north side of Navajo Mountain along the Rainbow Trail. This is a rare and authentic cultural experience you won’t want to miss, and one of CFI’s premier trips for over 20 years!
Canyonlands Field Institute is a non-profit education organization. All adult program fees help underwrite youth programs in experiential natural history and science education. For more information on this trip, visit cfimoab.org or contact Canyonlands Field Institute at info@cfimoab.org, or call 800-860-5262.
