o    2:00 p.m.: Region’s first “Solar Softball” game. The “pitchers” will be local experts in solar, wind, geothermal and other renewable energies, who will “pitch” questions at the “players”, who get on base by correctly answering the questions. Anyone who wants to can join in and the emphasis will be on fun and education. Questions will range from easier (for a single), to medium (for a double), to difficult (for a home run)


o          3:00-4:30 p.m. in AT 113: For The Next Seven Generations. “In 2004, thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers from all four corners, moved by their concern for our planet, came together at a historic gathering, where they decided to form an alliance: The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. This is their story. Four years in-the-making and shot on location in the Amazon rainforest, the mountains of Mexico, North America, and at a private meeting with the Dalai Lama in India, For the Next 7 Generations follows what happens when these wise women unite. Facing a world in crisis, they share with us their visions of healing and a call for change now, before it's too late. This film documents their unparalleled journey and timely perspectives on a timeless wisdom.” (from the webpage) For more information about this award-winning documentary, go to
