Davis, CA – April 19, 2019 – Davis Music Fest is back for a ninth consecutive year as the town’s very own SXSW-style music festival, June 21st-23rd. DMF9 features forty acts playing a wide range of music including funk, soul, indie-rock, jazz, Latin, hip hop, roots, soul, and more.
***THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT*** Swainson’s Hawk expert Jim Estep takes you on a popular, county-wide tour of the trees and agricultural fields where this California threatened species makes its summer home. Along the way, you’ll have ample opportunities to identify and learn about other raptors as well as see a long-time egret and heron rookery. At the end of the tour, the group will stop for lunch at a lovely country home in the heart of Yolo County where you can share stories of the morning’s adventures. This trip is perfect for beginner and more experienced hawk enthusiasts. Jim Estep is a wildlife biologist who has been working with Swainson’s Hawks for over 35 years. He has done research on various aspects of the species’ ecology, prepared management and conservation plans, and conducted surveys throughout the Central Valley and elsewhere. Photo by James Scott.
DAVIS, CA – June 23rd 2019 – The Davis Makerspace presents its summer repair cafe at its space in the Tim Spencer Alley, see: www.davismakerspace.org/about/location, on Sunday June 23rd from 11am to 6:30pm. A repair cafe is where people get together to help each other repair or improve an item you are having issues with. Our volunteers will provide help, while you research (lmgtfy, ifixit, youtube), and repair your item, with available tools and parts. The DMS has a selection of power and traditional hand tools, electronics tools, 3d printers, and a few other things. If you bring a 3d model software file, such as an .stl file, you should be able to print it either at or after the event. At past events we’ve seen things like, vacuums (conventional and robotic), portable air conditioning units, lamps, electronic pistol targets, computers, outdoor electrical cords, and arc welders. Repairing is a sustainable and conscious act that provides the benefits of education, environmental stewardship, and self reliance. With a little work you too, can do your part. Repairing things with others can be fun.
