Saturday, March 24, the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of Summit County will collect canned food and toiletry items for their "Scouting for Food" program. Participants are requested to use bags supplied earlier to donate canned meats and tuna, peanut butter and jellies, canned soups and veggies, canned juices and fruits, breakfast foods and cereals, with no perishable, homemade, or damaged items. Toiletries such as toothpastes, soaps, and shaving supplies are also needed, as well as disposable diapers. Scouts will collect bags from 9 a.m. on Saturday. It is requested bags be placed in a location that is easy to spot and retrieve from the street. Items collected in the Park City, Coalville, and Kamas areas will stay in those communities. This food drive is the major source of donated items for local food banks. Items are distributed most of the churches and community action agencies in Coalville and Kamas. Items may also be dropped off at local churches. Food donations are accepted year-round.

Stream-restoration volunteers needed

Swaner Nature Preserve is seeking volunteers (age 13 and over, or with a parent) to assist with stream restoration. Volunteers will harvest dormant willows along Kimball Creek. The willows will be replanted in late April along other stream banks in the preserve to re-establish willow stands that stabilize the banks and shade the water in these sensitive streams. Volunteers will cut, trim and transport willow branches, and are advised to be prepared for wet conditions, with boots or shoes that can get wet. Participants should bring work gloves. Loppers or pruning tools are a plus. Volunteers are needed Wednesday, March 28 through Friday, March 30, 1-4 p.m. The three outings are weather dependent. Those interested should contact or call 649-1767, voicemail, ext. 104.

The Park City Cooperative Preschool will host an open house for parents and prospective students on March 27, from 5-7 p.m. New-student registration will be held on April 12 at 9 a.m., directly outside the classroom at 1255 Park Ave, room 209. Spots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. A parent or representative must be present to register a child. Alumni registration is due by March 28.
