Get Involved didn't make it into the paper this week, so here it is — a trio of ways you can help your community.

• Sign up for a one-day workshop on the First Amendment and religious freedom in public schools. The event is designed for teachers, students, administrators and school staff and board members, however it is open to the public.

Contact: 520-9899, citizensproject.org

• Attend a two-day conference focused on “issues of citizen science, water-friendly futures and winter recreation,” with keynote speaker former Colorado governor Richard Lamm, who will discuss the 1976 Winter Olympics controversy and the roots of environmentalism in the state. Go online for full agenda.
