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

Sometimes, activism is as simple as yard work—a dirty job that just has to get done. This summer, get a little sun with your activism by volunteering to pull noxious weeds out of local canyons. Later, develop your own personal green skills by learning ways to store your garden’s harvest so it will last well into the winter. Finally, don’t miss an opportunity to party Vegas style with your dog at Canine Casino night.

Weed Warriors
Thursdays through Aug. 26
Have you got what it takes to be a weed warrior? OK, let’s be more specific— are you ready to help protect your canyons by volunteering to battle invasive weed species? If so, join the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation every Thursday this summer. Excursions will hit Mill Creek and Big and Little Cottonwood canyons. Organizers will provide training and tools, but volunteers need to bring their own sunscreen, water and work clothes.
Various locations, Thursdays through Aug. 26, 801-947- 8263, CottonwoodCanyons.org, volunteer@CottonwoodCanyons.org
