Join us Friday, July 31, 7-8pm for Dogs and Drones - a free and open community meetup in which we learn how use smart phones and drones. Let us know if you're attending and please bring all or more of the following: dog, drone, smartphone, plastic bag to pick up anything you might want to pick up.

Through the summer Dogs and Drones will take place the last Friday of the month in Henderson's Discovery Park in Green Valley Ranch (see the Google Map). This free and casual meetup connects dog lovers and drone aficionados as a pretext for a friendly neighborhood meet-and-greet. Get to know the names of your neighbors! Bonus points if you bring a ukelele. Meeting point: Horseshoes! Parking is nearby off of Walnut Village Road.

Participants are expected to practice responsible pet ownership. Clean up bags will be available, but please come prepared to clean up after your dog.

Remote participants are welcome. Use this event to help you plan your next visit to Southern Nevada. We will be talking about nearby state parks, national parks and wildlife refugees. Please like and share the event with any friends who are in the area. Below are recommended resources for locals and visitors alike keen on the local environment and rich traditions.

Herb Patten was born in 1943 and spent his early years in a small town called Numeralla, near Orbost, in south-east Victoria. Part of the Ganai-Kurnai tribes of the Gippsland area, Herb is also descended from the Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri groups from the surrounding country. But, as Uncle Herb says, his surname has German origins, so perhaps it's this rich cultural mix which led him towards a life in music and his chosen instrument—the gumleaf.Herb taught himself to play the leaf when he was about eight years old, after hearing his great-uncle blowing a leaf in the bush near where the family lived. Since then, Herb has become a skilled and passionate exponent of this form of music.

Herb Patten is a musician and master player of the gum leaf.

Our Monday hangout is a relaxed, show-and-tell with friends around the world. Mostly we talk about responsible, conscious, ecotourism that benefits locals and visitors alike. There are plenty of glitches - microphones that don't work, video stutter, so please be patients as viewers and participants. We unpack recent conferences, preview upcoming events and show each other our websites and presence on the social web channels. Questions are welcome from viewers, aka the audience.

If you would like to appear on camera, let me know! We encourage the Planeta editors --http://planeta.wikispaces.com/editors  -- to show off recent changes and to add links to the sites mentioned on the hangout. If you can embed a widget, help us out!

Ron's work catalyzes meaningful conversation and action about environmental conservation, ecotourism, responsible travel and peacemaking.
