Kitties, Luaus & Trees 

News_Citizen Revolt.jpg

Folks up north who are interested in lending a hand to a paw in need can volunteer with the Four Paws Rescue program in Logan as a cat caregiver. You can also celebrate the summer's end with a luau at the Neighborhood House and learn a little island dancing and more about the vital work of this nonprofit. This weekend, air-breathers and tree-huggers alike won't want to miss an opportunity to plant trees in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Cat Caregivers Wanted
Ongoing

Four Paws Rescue is a nonprofit dedicated to being the human voice speaking up for the meows of shelter cats in need in Cache Valley. The program needs cat-lovers who can spare an hour a week to volunteer at the cat adoption center socializing the cats, and changing bedding, food and water.

Neighborhood House Summer Luau

The Neighborhood House provides care services for everyone from children to senior citizens, on a sliding scale payment based on what their clients can afford. If you want to learn more about getting involved in this great organization, swing by the luau, where you'll also learn how to swing your hips with some traditional island dancing and also partake in some free food, games and face-painting for the kiddies.

Project Oxygen
Saturday, Aug. 16

For every car sold at Mark Miller Subaru, the car dealership is planting a tree to help air out the Wasatch Front's notoriously grimy air. In the spring, the dealership's Project Oxygen helped plant 2,000 trees along the Jordan River, and event organizers hope to plant just as many up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Volunteers are invited to come help plant trees and enjoy a light breakfast and barbecue lunch as reward for their hard work. The event is free, but registration is required.
