End of Life Summit
You don't like to think about it, but it's a fact—life ends. How it ends and how you deal with it—whether for your loved ones or yourself—depends on good communication and resources. "Patients, families, researchers, providers, policymakers, payers and the local community are invited to this event to participate in interactive presentations and discussions," say organizers of End of Life Care: Are You Ready? You will learn how our current healthcare industry treats this important issue, how reimbursements are made, how caregivers can access resources and more. Doty Education Center, Intermountain Medical Center Campus, 5121 Cottonwood St., Building 6, Murray, 801-892-6628, Thursday, April 26, 8 a.m.-1:15 p.m., $25, bit.ly/2vu9JHM.

LGBTQ Film Screening
You might not have seen the 2014 film The 4 Corners, a Salt Lake City film project that explores "family, religion, sex, cancer, friendship, love and heartbreak," by producer Lee Basquin, but it could be life changing. At Mama Dragons: A Celebration of the LGBTQ Community of Utah, the film continues its distribution strategy and creates a community dialogue about the prospect of change, the fear of failure and the uncertainty that creates. "What if life presented you with one of your biggest fears and you decided that you would no longer be afraid?" the film asks. Salt Lake City Public Library, 210 E. 400 South, Thursday, April 26, 6:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2Hf4BwJ.

Weeding the Urban Habitat
If you've never heard of the dalmatian toadflax, you're probably not alone. This pretty little plant has become an invasive weed, withstanding the cold of Utah winters and taking over farms and gardens. At the KRCL & Urban Habitat Weed Pluck, you can help hunt down the dreaded weed within Red Butte Garden. Come prepared for whatever weather Utah has to offer—sandals aren't recommended, as there are slopes involved in the hunt. If you can't make this one, there are other opportunities to get your hands dirty for a good cause. That includes purging your spurge and other infamous weeds. Red Butte Garden, 300 Wakara Way, 801-585-0556, Sunday, April 29, 8:30-11:30 a.m., free, bit.ly/2qMnwoy.
