Rally for Accountability and a Just Transition @ Utah Department of Workforce Services building
Feb 21 all-day
Rally for Accountability and a Just Transition @ Utah Department of Workforce Services building |  |  |

While you may never have heard of the Seven County Infrastructure Coalition, they quietly push many of the biggest fossil fuel projects in Utah, while the Community Impact Board bankrolls their efforts.

The Uinta Basin Railway oil train would quadruple oil extraction in the state’s northeast corner. Inland Port “satellite” hubs would boost coal mining and exports. And the Book Cliffs Highway would be another gift to companies that want to mine tar sands from the Tavaputs Plateau.

Join us in calling for the SCIC and the CIB to be held accountable for misusing public funds! Join us in calling for a fossil free future in Utah!

For more information and event updates visit the event Facebook page or contact Ryan at rbeam@biologicaldiversity.org or 928-853-9929.

Shankar Vedantam & Florence Williams: The Nature Fix @ Kingsbury Hall
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm
Shankar Vedantam & Florence Williams: The Nature Fix @ Kingsbury Hall |  |  |

Join Shankar Vedantam, host of NPR’s Hidden Brain, as he interviews prize-winning author Florence Williams about the restorative power of nature. For centuries, poets and philosophers extolled the benefits of a walk in the woods: Beethoven drew inspiration from rocks and trees, and Nikola Tesla conceived the electric motor while visiting a park. Intrigued by our storied renewal in the natural world, Williams sets out to uncover the best science behind nature’s positive effects on the brain. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, Williams will explain how the natural world can improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and ultimately strengthen our relationships. From forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to groves of eucalyptus in California, Williams’ keen observations-—and the answers they yield—are more urgent now than ever. Join us for a book signing by Williams and Vedantam following the lecture.
