11 AM: The Vitamin “N” (Nature) Factor in Our Lives, & Our National Parks’ Future!

Please join Bill Evans and explore the many significant benefits and rewards of the Nature (Vitamin “N”) Factor, and why this is such an important ingredient for our overall health in today’s world. The Vitamin “N” experience might well reach its most potent potential in our State and National Parks, Monuments, and wilderness areas.  Their future for us, our children, and our grandchildren is now seriously threatened.  Bill will share a visual odyssey of his most influential Nature Vitamin, Glacier National Park, MT., a U.N. World Heritage Site. Bill, now a Museum volunteer, has been a Sierra Club National Outings Leader for 20 years. He’s visited, led outings, and photographed most of the Western U.S. National Parks. He said, “My ‘love affair’ with our National Parks began when I was a seasonal employee in Glacier National Park, Montana.” He will also share with you how you can become involved in protecting our National Parks!

 


1 PM: Moving to Mars

A Maya scribe looks up to the heavens and tracks the movement a tiny speck of red light. Thousands of years later we ponder the red planet and wonder if humanity will ever make the leap to become a space-based culture. In our time together, we will explore the possibility and technology that will take us to another home… Mars. Dr. Dave Roberts, anthropologist, photographer, and historian, has worked in the field of anthropology for over thirty-five years from a conference speaker and published author, to a field researcher…from the Caribbean, to Central and South America. And now he’s a Museum volunteer!

 


2 PM: Kumeyaay Artifacts & Fire-Making Demo

Fred Thompson has been our Kumeyaay presenter for many years. Fred and Roy Hastings took Kumeyaay artifacts out to school classrooms, teaching students about, “A Day in the Life of a Kumeyaay.” They would end the presentation with a demonstration of one of the ways that fire was made before 1492. Now the presentations are given at the Museum as part of our Focus Field Trip Program. As always, the fire making is the hit. All ages are amazed and excited watching fire come alive from friction using a fire-making bow. Don’t miss this presentation and demonstration out on the Daniel R. Ciccati Tropical Garden Patio.
