Mar. 29th, 2015 - Hike Echo Canyon Trail

The Echo Canyon trail is located at the lower end of No Thoroughfare Canyon near the east entrance to Colorado National Monument. The trail leads into a small box canyon that can produce a reverberating echo.  During moist times in the spring, tiny canyon tree frogs are frequently seen.

This 3.3 mile hike is described as moderate. There is a several minute steep ascent on slickrock and then a bit of rock scrambling before reaching the canyon terminus.

No dogs are allowed on trails in the monument. Bring a walking stick if you use one, a light lunch and plenty of water.

When: Sunday, Mar. 29th at 9:30 am

Mar. 21st, 2015 - Movie: Religulous

Comedian and TV host Bill Maher takes a pilgrimage across the globe on a mind-opening journey into the ultimate taboo: questioning religion. Meeting the high and low from different religions, Maher simply asks questions, like "Why is faith good?" "Why doesn't an all-powerful God speak to us directly?" and "How can otherwise rational people believe in a talking snake?" For anyone who's even a little spiritually curious, this divine entertainment will deepen your faith...in comedy! We'll use any remaining time after the documentary for discussion. Please feel welcome to bring any food and drink you may want.

The film is rated R and this showing is not open to the general public.

When: Saturday, March 21st from 10 am - Noon

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road - Park in the parking lot at the rear of the building and enter through the external Garden Room entrance)

Mar. 15th, 2015 - Roadside Cleanup of Adopted Highway

Let's get out and clean our adopted section of the I-70 Business Loop just west of Mesa Mall. We have intentionally adopted a section of road that accumulates a lot of waste and we need all of our volunteers to help play a role in keeping our local environment clean. We will provide safety jackets and trash bags, but recommend that you bring your own gloves and water. We typically also have a treasure hunt for the strangest item. There are two safety videos we ask that volunteers watch before participating the first time and they can be viewed at the following link:
