The National Parks: America's Best Idea 

When: Mon., Sept. 7, 10 a.m. 2009

Top off your Labor Day celebration with an evening of Americana at the foot of "America's Mountain." Tonight, Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site (3202 Chambers Way, rockledgeranch.com) will host a free concert by bluesman Willie Houston at 5:30, followed by a free outdoor preview screening from Ken Burns' latest PBS series, The National Parks: America's Best Idea, at 7:30. The complete six-part series, by the filmmaker known for The War, Jazz, The West and Baseball, will begin airing on Rocky Mountain PBS on Sept. 27. And if that's not enough Americana for you, come at 1 and enjoy hot dogs, popcorn and ice cream while you watch the Ranch's old-time baseball game. — Jill Thomas
