Looking for Something to Do? Free Events March 22 to 27

Here are my top picks for events scheduled from Saturday, March 22, to Thursday, March 27.

All events are free, so take a look -- and don't you dare tell me there's nothing to do in Pasadena!

Spend the morning Saturday, March 22, in nature beginning at 9 a.m. at the annual Hahamongna Walkabout and learn about innovations in natural river management. Meet at Devil's Gate Dam. Topics at stops along the walkabout will include sediment removal behind the dam, the Arroyo Seco Canyon project and more. Bring a hat and water and wear good walking shoes. You can also do a bikeabout (helmets are required) beginning at 8 a.m.

The history of the women's movement is more complex than many people realize. Filmmaker Jennifer Lee's award-winning documentary "Feminist: Stories from Women's Liberation" will be screened Saturday, March 22, at 2 p.m. at Allendale Branch Library in celebration of Women's History Month. After the screening Lee and others will discuss how far we've come and the struggle to get here and will answer questions. 

At Hill Avenue Branch Library Saturday, March 22, at 3 p.m. you'll learn the perks and perils of starting a garden by direct sowing of seeds, then walk across the street to PCC's Green Seeds Club garden to see how foods from seeds are being grown for donation.

This week's film in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium at Pasadena Central Library is the Academy Award-winning "Hugo" (2011, PG) Wednesday, March 26, at 1 p.m. When his father dies, a 12-year-old orphan takes up residence behind the walls of a Parisian train station where he meets the person who holds the key to his destiny.
