The event is sponsored and organized by Bruce Gleason of the Backyard Skeptics. The LogiCal-LA 2019 conference is happening this summer, so mark your calendars for July 21, 2019! This conference explores what's new in the science world, examines why we think the way we do and promotes the public education of science. This year we will be having 12 exciting speakers to enlighten and inspire all who attend. We are very proud to be the only annual conference in the Los Angles area and look forward to a well-attended event where everyone will have their fill of the latest that science educators have to offer. Lunch, snack time and an afternoon cookie break will be included. There will be a Saturday night social and Sunday dinner with many of our speakers attending.

Join us for a FUN event EVERY Sunday morning! DOGS WELCOME WE WILL BE MEETING AT THE 9TH ST ENTRANCE Want to have fun and stay healthy too? Join us for some exercise AND enjoy the wonders of nature at the same time! This exercise is fun and the views from the top are absolutely awesome! It takes about 45 minutes to hike up and a half hour down. This is an easy hike, but may be strenuous for anyone who is not in good physical condition. Bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable shoes. Bathrooms and water fountains are not available on Mt. Rubidoux. DIRECTIONS: Mount Rubidoux Memorial Park is located on the western edge of downtown Riverside, just a few minutes off the 91 Freeway. Parking on 9th St. fills up quickly and is heavily enforced. We recommend parking on Mt. Rubidoux Dr. and 6th St. then walking across the Buena Vista bridge to the 9th St entrance (see map). PLEASE try to arrive a few minutes early because we like to start the hike on time. We will be meeting at the 9th street entrance at the top of 9th st. and Mt. Rubidoux Dr. PLEASE RSVP. Friendly dogs are welcome but remember that dogs must be on a short leash. No toilets in the park. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE PARKING SIGNS SINCE THERE ARE LOTS OF RESTRICTIONS ON PARKING IN THE AREA. MUCH OF THE PARKING IS RESERVED FOR RESIDENTS WITH PERMITS! TICKETS ARE LIBERALLY DISPENSED BY PARKING ENFORCEMENT FREE admission to the park.
Join us for some lively conversation! IEAA members meet every Sunday morning for breakfast. We are a friendly group and welcome new members. Farmer Boys is located on University Avenue in downtown Riverside. Their prices are reasonable and there is a patio outside where we sit, making for a nice, non-noisy location. Weather permitting we sit outside where friendly dogs on leashes are welcome. Look for the IEAA tee shirts if it is your first time to attend.
For those of you who've never been, this is a very positive, energizing event! Almost everyone who stops by is genuinely curious about what we're about. Often those who come over to talk are excited and relieved to know there are other Atheists/Humanists in this town and to find out about FAR and the IEAAH. We have our own self published as well as American Humanist Association pamphlets. There are several well-seasoned regulars who attend you can learn from if you simply want to observe and not engage with others. Don't worry because our regulars are kind, patient and represent our community in a very positive way, never attacking or trying to "best" or be adversarial. This is outreach primarily, looking for the like-minded and offering community. Look for space BB near the corner of 6th and State Street on the same side as Caprice Cafe. We're often next to "Soaring Swine Acres"! We're about the 4th space from 6th Street not counting the corner spaces. Come on out everyone is welcome! There are MANY ways you can help with this event! 1) The cost of the booth is $50.00, so please consider donating a $ or 2 by clicking the "chip-in" button on this site. It is easy to use! We'll also be happy to take your check or check us out on Patreon.com 2) Help set up the booth: if all you have time for is to help set it up, that'd be totally okay! You can help mount it, and then go if you need to. 3) Help tear it down: If all you have time for is to help tear down the booth, that'd be just fine! 4)Support: If you are shy about working the booth, come show up anyway and just hang out (on the other side!) It looks great to have a large gathering of people outside the booth. 5) If you can work it, but can't stay the entire time, no problem. Just let us know what you're able to work. • What to bring We need at least 2 people for set up and 2 people for tear down. Consider bringing some bottled water. We have 4 chairs, so possibly bring your own lawn chair, sunglasses, and hat in the summer.
