We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

200 Years of Darwin


For 150 years, Darwin's monumental theory of evolution has, not only tested age-old beliefs on why and how we exist, but has acted as inspiration for everything from local beer to bumper sticker campaigns. To celebrate Darwin's 200th birthday and keep the debate alive, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute provides two new classes this fall. The classes, designed for those 50 and over, explore Darwin's theories and how they impact our lives today. "Darwin's Footsteps: Evolutionary Biology in the 21st Century" begins Sept. 16. and "Cosmic Evolution: Astrophysics from the Big Bang and Today" begins Sept. 17.
