Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.
To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:
- The event must take place in Utah.
- The organization promoting the event must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.
- The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.
If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.
KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization. Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible. Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.
Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the event.
If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.
Did you know that two-thirds of Utah’s drinking water is used to water home lawns? Want to save money on your water bills? Utah State University Cooperative Extension, the Central Utah Water Conservancy District and the Metropolitan Water District of Salt Lake and Sandy have once again teamed up to bring you the USU Free Water Check Program (now in its 17th season), offering free sprinkler system and landscape evaluations to Utah residents in participating counties.
A team of Water Check irrigation system evaluators will come to your home to conduct an on-site analysis of your in-ground, automatic sprinkler system. A customized watering schedule will be created for your landscape, along with a list of ways to improve your sprinkler system’s performance.
Call 1-877-728-3420 or visit www.SlowTheFlow.org to sign up for a free water check, and a representative will contact you to schedule an appointment.
Program runs from May 18th through the end of August. Appointments take place Monday – Friday, with appointments from 8 am – 5 pm.
In preparation for the fall migration season, come join the HWI science staff for a brief presentation on our migration network and why we conduct long-term monitoring of raptors. This is not an identification workshop–this presentation will go over our migration network, ecology, and what we’ve learned through our migration research.
The second half of the presentation will discuss our Western Ridge Modeling Project. You’ll learn how our 30+ years of data are being used to predict high volume bird corridors, and how (and why) we are working to create predictive models of the entire western flyway.
Bring your bike to the museum for a two-hour-long bike tour, starting at UMOCA and ending at the Grateful Tomato Garden for the Tomato Sandwich Party, the Wasatch Community Garden’s kickoff event for Eat Local Week.
For those who don’t have a bike, don’t fret! SLC’s non-profit bike share, GREENbike, has a station right outside of the museum, with an all-day pass for $5.
Become a Bird Docent Volunteer and experience the wonder of raptors, first hand, while helping HWI expand its education mission!
Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and our various programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties.
We invite you to join us on Saturday September 19th, 2015 for the Second Annual Nine Mile Canyon Stewardship Day! A free public event where visitors will drive down the ~40 mile canyon stopping at its most famed archaeological sites, where site stewards will answer questions, lead educational activities, and share the canyons history. The site stewards are comprised of volunteer high school students, archaeological professionals, and other canyon experts.
