MEET-AND-GREET FOR WOMEN
If you want to meet other like-minded women—you know, ones who are sick and tired of living like second-class citizens—then you should head out to network with the Ladies Who Empower Social Club. The kickoff party, Raise Your Vibration Meet-and-Greet, is all about empowering, embracing, loving and enjoying the company of other females. They're inviting you to join the movement. New Pathways Wellness Center, 435 W. 400 South, 801-414-7592, Friday, Aug. 11, 7-9 p.m., free, bit.ly/2wcAAEy

HOW THE WEST WAS GROWN
The west side of Salt Lake City has a vibrant and storied history, but it just doesn't get a lot of respect. The Westside Forward! Festival rolls out the city's development plan for the Glendale and Poplar Grove neighborhoods amid food and festivities. These are some of Salt Lake City's most extraordinary neighborhoods, but they have been stunted by narrow-minded perceptions and, of course, a lack of funding for enhancements. Don't miss the opening ceremony for the 9-Line Bike Park, which the community calls a one-of-a-kind destination on the west side of town. Riders of all ability levels can test their skills on a pump track or try new dirt jumps. Local food truck fare is available along with music, bicycle drawings and a host of city services. 905 S. 700 West, 801-535-7907, Saturday, Aug. 12, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., free, bit.ly/2upGsIz

SIERRA CLUB JAMBOREE
Imagine a weekend in the High Uinta wilderness, working side-by-side with U.S. Forest Service personnel and learning about the real state of public lands first-hand. The second annual Utah Sierra Club Jamboree promises a weekend "to explore, enjoy and learn to protect Utah." You can choose from presentations on environmental justice, the state's national monuments defense or the history of grazing in Southern Utah. Choose your own adventure or art project, like making posters for the #KeepItPublic campaign. Sleep in a cabin or under the stars. YMCA Camp Roger, Soapstone Basin off Mirror Lake Highway, 801-467-9294, Ext. 101, starts Friday, Aug. 18, 3 p.m.; ends Sunday, Aug. 20, 12:30 p.m., adults, $35; children, $20, utah.sierraclub.org
