CANINE VACCINATION CLINIC
While humans are conflicted about vaccinations, the animal kingdom is good with it. Or at least the humans with animals. Nobody loves a rabid dog. To that end, Ogden Animal Services, along with the Humane Society of Utah, Doctor Jensen and Howard with Wasatch Hollow Animal Hospitals are offering a Canine Vaccination Clinic. Better yet, it's a bilingual educational clinic, featuring free dog food, licensing, reduced-cost vaccines, hot dogs (not the real dogs) and vouchers. Marshall White Center, 222 28th St., Ogden, 801-628-8244, Saturday, April 2, 1-3 p.m., free, bit.ly/1Rpd6z8

INEQUALITY EVENT
Yeah, yeah, it's possible that the United States will have a woman president. Is that a big deal after 100 years of unprecedented growth in equality? Of course, it is. There are growing levels of economic inequality and persistent gender inequality in communities. "Inequality in our society affects our politics, our public health, our economy and more," says Jim Curry, associate professor of political science at the University of Utah. Find out about the challenges and what you can do to help during this all-day event Unequal Voices: The Politics of Inequality. Morning panels: Hinckley Institute of Politics, Orson Spencer Hall, 260 Central Campus Drive, 801-581-8501, Thursday, March 31, 9:30-11:45 a.m., free, Hinckley.Utah.edu. Afternoon roundtable discussion with Jennifer Napier-Pearce: City Library, 210 E. 400 South, 801-524-8200, 2:30-4 p.m., free, SLCPL.org

DOWNTOWN GARDEN STROLL
Utahns either converge on or avoid downtown Salt Lake City during LDS Conference time. This year, there's interest blooming on almost every street corner as eight artist-designed temporary public parks "pop-up" on Main Street. It's time for the second annual Downtown Garden Stroll stretching from South Temple to 300 South. This ongoing event features diverse floral arrangements in a surprising and delightful array of creativity. The 8- by 20-foot parks are on sidewalks, launching during Conference. At the end of the event, elements of the pop-up parks will be awarded to the winner of a "selfie contest," hosted on instagram. Various locations, April 1-May 8, free, open to public, DowntownSLC.org
