Welcome to Humanists Doing Good!
We are a nonprofit and nonreligious community of compassionate and rational people doing good for the sake of good. We are people learning, socializing and volunteering together. We are always looking for more people to join our cause and invite you to learn more about our organization and our beliefs. You just may be surprised to learn that great minds such as Albert Einstein have shared our vision.
Humanists Doing Good focuses on improving our lives by improving the lives of others.
Humanists Doing Good will be hiking the Mica Mine trail beginning at 10:00 am on Earth Day and we invite you to attend. This is an easy 2.6 mile roundtrip hike and leads to an old mica mine in the Bangs Canyon area. There may also be the possibility to see a waterfall if the group chooses to extend the hike a slight bit. Due to lack of rainfall, we’re uncertain if it will be actively flowing at this time. Dogs are welcome on this trail, but please bring a leash and cleanup bags. We plan to bring a few trash bags to collect any litter and dog waste we encounter along the path to help do our small part for the environment on Earth Day. Pooper-scoopers welcomed. Feel free to wear your volunteer shirt since we'll be doing some volunteer work along the way. Everyone should pack a lunch and bring adequate water.
Join Humanists Doing Good for our First Annual Meeting. We will be reflecting on our achievements, discussing the future, distributing volunteer shirts, formalizing our membership and much more. This is an excellent opportunity for new people to learn about our Chapter and our direction. We will also be inviting everyone to share their thoughts about the upcoming year. Some food and coffee will be provided, but everyone is welcome to bring something to share if you would like to.
Where: Mesa Mall Community Room
When: 10:00 am to Noon
Join us for a day of hiking up Big Dominguez Canyon on Sunday the 8th at 9:00 am until roughly 3:00 pm. We are limiting this hike to 12 individuals (to stress the Big Horn sheep less and help with Wilderness Characteristics) so please be sure to let us know if you are coming! We'll see some rock art, a nice waterfall, and if we're lucky, sheep! Dogs are welcome in the canyon, but due to the lambing season should be in good control (either leash or voice).
To get to the trailhead you have to drive about 18 miles south of Grand Junction, Colorado toward Delta, Colorado. The going will be gradually flat, but eventually you'll see a hill to drive up and the turnoff is at the top of that smallish hill (turn right). It can be easy to miss, so be watching. The road is marked with "Bridgeport". Turn on the Bridgeport Road and then drive 3.2 miles down a gravel road to the parking area. Suitable for passenger cars. Consider carpooling!
Bring the usual hiking items such as sunscreen, lots of water, camera, lunch, hat, good shoes, etc. The hike isn't too difficult but can be hot and will be about 6.8 miles round trip if you want to make it up to the petroglyphs. See you Sunday!
