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

Enjoying the outdoors while learning about it


The Canyonlands Field Institute, an outdoor-education nonprofit association located in Moab, is a fantastic resource for exploring the outdoors and learning a thing or two while you're at it. ---

The Institute has two upcoming trips that could make for a great weekend out of the city. A two-day trip offered April 26-28 is ideal for archaeology buffs. The trip comprises a tour of Cedar Mesa and Comb Ridge, with guides trained in natural history and archaeology who will bring you up to speed on developments in these fields in the area. The trip includes a two-night stay and meals for the duration of the program at the Recapture Lodge in Bluff.

Another trip in late April will give guests an opportunity to explore the Navajo Mountain area and learn about present-day and historical Diné (Navajo) culture. With two Diné guides, guests will take daily hikes from base camp, explore the local landscapes, view canyon rock art and visit Diné families. Additionally, the trip will provide background on the area's geological and ecological history.

Kathleen Curry and Geoff Griffin write regularly about their treks near and far in City Weekly and host the weekly Travel Brigade Radio Show. Follow them on Twitter @TravelBrigade.
