Summer is about over, but it’s not too late to harvest some community activism. This week, celebrate and support the work of Utah’s first nature center by attending the Ogden Nature Center’s Wildwood Bash benefit party. Saturday, support the Wasatch Community Gardens by attending its tomato sandwich party and fall plant sale. Later in the week, Salt Lake County residents can weigh in on development plans for unincorporated areas, as well as an ordinance regulating flashy marquees.

Ogden Nature Center Wildwoods Bash
Friday, Sept. 7
The Ogden Nature Center introduces thousands of Utah children and visitors every year to the natural wonders in our own backyard. With walking trails, picnic areas, treehouses for spotting birds of prey and hands-on field classes, the Nature Center preserves 152 acres of natural beauty for the education and enjoyment of future generations. This weekend, enjoy the Wildwoods Bash, where a $60 ticket will get you food prepared by Ogden chefs, live jazz music and a chance to bid on great outdoor gear. Ogden Nature Center, 966 W. 12th St., 801-621-7595, Sept. 7, 5 p.m.- 9 p.m., OgdenNatureCenter.org

Tomato Sandwich Party & Plant Sale
Saturday, Sept. 8
Take a bite out of the best the community has to offer by checking out the Wasatch Community Gardens tomato sandwich party. Enjoy a free tomato sammich, browse the fall plant sale and reap a little community togetherness at this annual harvest celebration. Grateful Tomato Garden, 800 S. 600 East, 801-359-2658, Sept. 8, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., WasatchGardens.org

Salt Lake County Planning Commission
Wednesday, Sept. 12
The planning commission is looking to approve best practices for economic development in the county’s unincorporated areas and could use your input. Also, county residents haven’t taken a shine to marquees that flash electronic messages and images, so the commission will consider an ordinance to forbid animations and set certain hours for flashing messages. Salt Lake County Planning Commission, 2001 S. State, 801-468-2818, Sept. 12, 9 a.m.-11 a.m., SLCO.org
