|2011-07-12 Bat Flight - an Exciting Tucson Summer Evening! |
by Korene Charnofsky Cohen
Looking for an interesting way to spend a summer evening in Tucson? Think bats! An adventure for the whole family awaits you at the 'bat bridge' on Campbell Avenue, just south of River Road. There are at least 20,000 bats that roost here, and each night, thousands of bats take flight in search of dinner. These are Mexican free-tailed bats, and they eat an enormous amount of insects including moths, mosquitoes and flies.
On Thursday evenings through August docents from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum will be on hand from about 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. to provide visitors with basic information about bats, dispel some myths and give you information how to build a bat house for your yard. "One of the myths is about bats and rabies," says Marie Long, interpretive p ...read more...

|2012-10-27 Edith ball swimming pool |
A couple nights ago my family went to the pool. We needed something to do and everyone agreed that swimming sounded fun. So we headed out to the Edith ball swimming pool. Since it is starting to get cold in Tucson the pool seemed a little chilly. I could barely swim it was so cold.
Then one of my sister spotted the therapy pool that looked heated and everyone was in that pool. We hurried over to the therapy pool to find that It was almost like a hot tub it was so warm. In this pool they had jets and lots of things for elderly people and for people who need the therapy pool. Some of these things were weights that float and a tread mill on the side. The pool was highly chlorinated so when I went under water I was sure to close eyes.
I had a great time the pool over all. ...read more...

|2012-07-03 Summer Track & Field |
Family track and field every Tuesday and road races every Thursday. For $3 per kid and $4 per adult you can run in all the races you like, in a relaxed atmosphere with runners of all types - from 4-something minute milers to first-timers. The longer races are combined to make the meet go faster. Our family came last Tuesday and I was really impressed with how well the meet was run, with races and field events all going quickly and smoothly. Because of the setup there is not much waiting around, one event or another is coming up all night long for each age group.
For more information, see below or attached flyer.

200 S 6th Ave
Cool summer fun - the Tucson Children's Museum is not only open during construction this summer, several inside areas have already been upgraded: The Wee World for 4's and under has a jungle look with Mayan pyramid and highly original flying frogs (you have to try them to appreciate). The new fitness area features a dance-computer thing and climbing wall, right across from the doctor's office with a real microscope. Finally a kitchen area has been added to the ever-popular grocery shop.
Some changes are tiny but cool - look for a simple but neat 'maglev' train right by the pushbutton train exhibit.
