Bury the Landfill Meeting
Whoa! Do you remember when the Great Salt Lake was a dumping ground for human waste? On track now is something that could be as tragic and dangerous. "The Lake is under threat by a company that seeks to place a landfill on Promontory Point, 1,000 feet from this irreplaceable natural resource," say the organizers of this Promontory Point Landfill Public Meeting. Don't just think of the lake. Think of the ecosystem—the migratory birds and the $1.3 billion in revenue the lake generates for the state. Promontory Point Resources is seeking a Class V permit to accept hazardous waste from out of state. If you don't want Utah to enhance its reputation as a waste destination, then join environmentalists for a presentation by Allan Moore, Solid Waste Program Manager, Utah Department of Environmental Quality. Westminster College, Gore Auditorium, 1840 S. 1300 East, Monday, Feb. 5, or Weber State University, Elizabeth Hall, Room 229, Tuesday, Feb. 6, both 6:30-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2BuL83x.

Run for Air
Patagonia. You know them. They're the outfit that dissed the whole idea of reducing national monuments and opening public lands to corporate interests. The company is sponsoring Running Up for Air, an endurance challenge up Grandeur Peak to raise money in the fight for clean air along the Wasatch Front. The event is for runners and of course, clean air advocates, and offers a brochure on Air Quality 101. While the run itself is on Saturday, Feb. 10, a pre-run party is scheduled with a short film, presentation, food, fun and a silent auction. Patagonia Outlet, 2292 S. Highland Drive, 801-466-2226, Friday, Feb. 2,6-9 p.m., free for registrants and volunteers, bit.ly/2DBN8c0.

Abortion Stories
What's up at the Legislature? Of course, it's abortion with all the heartfelt personal stories and angst from a deeply committed pro-life cabal. There are two sides to this story, and if you're at all tired of talking fetuses, you may want to participate in Remarkably Normal, Abortion Stories from the 1 in 3 Campaign, a play that "gives its audience the chance to rise above the political fray and to focus on the personal, putting voices to a powerful number," the Texas Observer says. In celebration of the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, proceeds go to support Planned Parenthood of Utah. Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, Jeanné Wagner Theatre, 138 W. Broadway, 801-322-5571, Friday, Feb. 2, 6 p.m. reception, 7 p.m. performance, $40-$100, bit.ly/2DHysMM.
