This week, you can get a crash course on how easy it is to get involved in the political process at the neighborhood level by attending a free University of Utah forum about upcoming caucuses. Salt Lake City river rats won’t want to miss a public workshop on river projects in the city. Later, check out a meeting of the Salt Lake City Open Space Advisory Board and learn how to help preserve more green acres in our urban landscape.

How to Attend Your Precinct Meeting & Be Effective
Tuesday, Feb. 28

Utah’s caucus system need not be as cryptic as Freemasonry—all you need to know to get involved is the basics. This forum, put on by the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics, will let you know all the tips, from finding your local caucus meeting to how to get elected as a delegate for convention. This grass-roots political primer is free and open to the public and led by Maura Carabello, original owner of political lobby firm The Exoro Group. Hinckley Caucus Room, Orson Spencer Hall, 260 S. Central Campus Drive, University of Utah, 801-581-8501, Feb. 28, 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m., Hinckley.Utah.edu

Riparian Corridor Improvement Projects
Tuesday, Feb. 28

If you want to make sure Salt Lake City’s riversides are preserved in useful and responsible ways for recreation and development, then you’ll want to show up to the public workshops being held to talk about possible improvements to be made along the City, Parleys, Red Butte and Emigration creeks, as well as the Jordan River. Don’t let your voice be drowned out from the discussion. Anderson-Foothill Library, 1135 S. 2100 East, 801-483-6900, Feb. 28, 6-8 p.m., SLCH20.com
