Meet the Neighbors: Amy May of TreeUtah, a nonprofit that works with students, municipalities, local businesses, community groups, and volunteers to plant trees in public spaces throughout the state.
Tree Utah's Community Tree Planting program helps make schools, parks, and other spaces beautiful and inviting by planting and maintaining large trees. With newly planted trees, these areas will help improve the air, lower temperatures in our cities, and even reduce crime.
To ensure the health of natural ecosystems, Tree Utah's Ecological Restoration volunteers help plant thousands of native trees and woody perennials along riparian corridors like the Jordan River. They also work on reforestation efforts on National Forest Service lands such as in Little Cottonwood Canyon and Big Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake County.
#ManyCulturesOneSky with SkyWatcher Leo T, a RadioACTive volunteer-contributor who shares his love for the night sky and cultural tales of the constellations during #PunkRockFarmerFridays. Tonight, a visit with retired UVU professor Larry Harper, who shared a story of seeing a spectacular vista in the Sea of Rains. Plus, the latest news on Artemis-1!
Shell Yeah of Rock Camp SLC, which was screenprinting the KRCL Bee and logo on t-shirts during 9-0-9 Day. Look for their rock camp for adults this fall!
