A one-day junior ranger program for children ages 6 to 12 is being held this Friday, July 15, at Saguaro National Park West.

The event, which runs from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., includes a variety of fun, hands-on activities such as hiking, exploring the great outdoors, looking for animals and their tracks, searching for secret stuff on a scavenger hunt, games and crafts.

The day camp will be held at the park's environmental education center, near the Red Hills Visitor Center.  The visitor center is located at 2700 North Kinney Road, approximately two miles northwest of the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.

Fee for the camp is $10.

As space is limited, advanced registration is required.  For additional information, or to register a child for the camp, contact Ranger Adrian Garcia at 733-8614, or by e-mail at SNPandKids@gmail.com.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
