June 24th 7 p.m.The first Earth Day is the most famous little-known event in modern American history. Because we still pay ritual homage to the planet every April 22, everyone knows something about Earth Day. Some people may also know that Earth Day 1970 made the environmental movement a major force in American political life. But no one has told the whole story before. For more information, please call Grass Roots Books & Music at 541-754-7668.
Dragon Theater Puppets presents ‘I Dig Dinosaurs’. Corvallis Public Library, 645 NW Monroe Ave, Corvallis. June 26th 3:30 p.m. Time machines, dinosaurs and puppets. There’s no way this isn’t a blast! Join host Shawnry Connery, as he builds a time machine in search of dinosaurs and instead winds up collecting historical figures (Bill and Ted, anyone?). They all end up in the past with the dinosaurs and have to find their way back to their own times. Undoubtedly a great event for kids, as well as nerdy, puppet-loving adults!
