For the Birds 


This weekend, stretch your calves and fly down the track for a 5k fun run to benefit the Ogden Nature Center. Later on in the week, West Valley City residents will not want to miss a public hearing on police conduct in the city. West Jordan residents will want to attend a hearing on the city’s proposed uses for federal grants for such worthwhile causes as the Road Home homeless shelter and the South Valley Sanctuary for victims of domestic violence.

The 5k makes two laps through the scenic preserve and a 2.5k and a 100-yard dash competition are available for children. The staff will have some awesome birds of prey to show off as well.
