Bike along the Santa Cruz River Paseo de las Iglesias to Las Milpitas Community Farm for a family screening of Rango!
FRIDAY, APRIL 26 at 6:30 PM
This screening will take place outdoors at Las Milpitas Community Farm, 2405 S Cottonwood Ln, Tucson, AZ 85713. Please bring your own seating (chairs and blankets). Geronimo’s Revenge food truck will be on site starting at 6:30pm. Suggested donation is $5 per family, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
This event is part of the Loft Cinema’s Science on Screen, an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, in partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. It is a collaboration of the Loft Cinema, Las Milpitas Community Farm of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, and Pima County Food Alliance (PCFA).
Featuring an introduction by Sergio Avila-Villegas, Conservation Research Scientist and Regional Outdoors Coordinator for the Sierra Club. Film introduction begins at 6:30pm; film begins by 7:00pm.
In the animated action/comedy Rango, Johnny Depp provides the voice of the title character, a kooky pet chameleon who gets tossed into a wild and raucous western town in desperate need of a hero. Through a series of comical misadventures, Rango is appointed sheriff of this lawless outpost (a town so tough it’s just called “Dirt”), but the question is: can one unprepared and completely unqualified chameleon possibly change this little town’s future for the better? Filled with goofy characters, humorous action and comical parodies of classic Spaghetti Westerns, Rango is an animated treat for the whole family.
Sergio Avila-Villegas is the Regional Outdoors Coordinator for the Sierra Club. He is responsible for designing and directing volunteer recruitment and training programs that support and enhance Sierra Club local level outdoors programming. His goal is to increase the number and diversity of people connected to nature throughout the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Nevada. Previously, Sergio worked as a Conservation Research Scientist with the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, where he led collaborative efforts on connectivity for wildlife, habitat restoration, education and interpretation in the Sonoran Desert region of Sonora, Baja California and Arizona. Sergio graduated from the University of Baja California with a Master’s degree in Arid Lands Management, and the University of Aguascalientes with a B.S. in Biology. For over sixteen years, Sergio has gained extensive training and experience working in remote areas of northwest Mexico and the U.S. southwest on wildlife conservation and research, and on challenges related to wildlife movement across the US-Mexico border.
Shop local & meet Tucson’s independent designers, makers & shops at our Spring Market on Saturday, April 27th from 10am-5pm at 1 E. Toole Ave. in the heart of Downtown Tucson where, for one day only, we’ll take over & reimagine an unused space and fill it with a pop-up market consisting of local goods, plants & flowers, food & coffee, and a community gathering space! You’ll find over 50 local vendors inviting you to learn more about their stories and products! This event is FREE to attend.
The market is a great reason for a bike ride into Downtown Tucson – Living Streets Alliance has some recommended low-stress bike routes from every direction and will have extra bike racks on site, sponsored by Technicians for Sustainability.
Help SDMB and Pima County NRPR complete a nearly 7-mile expansion of the trails in Tucson Mountain Park by volunteering at Enchanted Hills. Now that machine building and complete and the AmeriCorps NCCC team is finished, it’s time to start on the hand-built singletrack, which includes the climbing trail to the top of the Tech Trail, an intermediate trail below the stone house, and the loop trail on the east side of the site.
Meet at the 36th St. Trailhead (from Mission & 36th, follow 36th St. W and it dead ends at the TH) at 8:00 AM and plan on working until noon. Volunteers need to bring work gloves, water, and snacks and wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. SDMB will provide tools and post-work refreshments. Please note that there is limited parking; if possible, carpool.
We’re taking over the street in front of our house for a Sunday morning pop-up parklet! Ride on over, sit a while, visit with neighbors, make new friends, and enjoy the cool morning in the shade of our pine tree – we’ll have a Sunday Paper & bagels to share, bring your own coffee.
