Mar. 16th, 2014 - Roadside Cleanup



Help Humanists Doing Good do our part to clean up our local environment as we volunteer to pick up trash along our adopted portion of the highway. Our adopted portion of the I-70 Business Loop (aka 6 & 50) is just west of the Mesa Mall and extends to the interstate overpass. We will be avoiding areas currently under construction. Safety jackets and trash bags will be provided. We recommend bringing gloves and some people have found grabbing tools or spiked sticks useful for picking up trash in the past. Volunteers with yellow HDG shirts are encouraged to wear them.

Volunteers planning to participate should watch the two brief safety videos found at the following address: http://www.coloradodot.info/programs/adopt-a-highway/safety-videos.html

When: Sunday, March 16 from 10:00 am - noon

Where: Meet in the parking lot of Stewart and Stevenson at 2380 US Highway 6 & 50

Mar. 9th, 2014 - Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey Premiere


Would you love to watch the highly anticipated new Cosmos series with other people who appreciate science and reason? Join us for the premiere episode of Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey. The new documentary series explores how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It is a follow-up to the classic 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which was presented by Carl Sagan. The new series' presenter is Neil deGrasse Tyson. Let's consider it to be similar to a midnight movie premiere... except with fans of science getting their geek on instead.

A variety of hot teas will be available and people are welcome to bring snacks to share. The show starts at 7:00 pm, but we are asking people to arrive at 6:30 to settle in and talk before the show starts.

When: Mar. 9th at 6:30 pm

Where: Directions to Jesse and Velvet's will be provided to everyone who RSVPs.

Mar. 8th, 2014 - Hiking the Pet-e-Kes Trail


It's time to emerge from winter's hibernation with our first hike of the year. We'll be hiking the Pet-e-Kes trail just off Monument Road in the Redlands area of Grand Junction. The trail is rated as easy-moderate with a distance of about 3.3 miles. It has about a 400 foot elevation change. We'll be doing the hike at a leisurely pace and well-behaved/socialized dogs are welcome.

We will meet at the Tabeguache Lunch Loop Trailhead parking lot. Be sure to arrive early or on time, as we will depart promptly. Please bring sufficient food and drink to meet your needs and anything else you might require. This is a fair weather event and will be postponed in the event of poor weather conditions.
