Summer days are upon us, and it’s time to get outdoors and soak up a little vitamin D. But before you dig out the flip-flops, maybe you ought to consider throwing in your 2 cents as to the fate of a local waterway by participating in a river-corridor public workshop. Or if living and saving green is more your cup of green tea, check out classes on home energy efficiency and composting 101.

Emigration Creek Riparian Corridor Study Public Workshop Thursday, May 21
