Dunking dentists, a movie under the stars, and lots of other fun on Saturday, June 21

Lots going on this Saturday in the Treasure Valley. Consider:

— "Dunk the Dentists": All About You Dental hosts a fundraiser, 1-4 p.m., in the office parking lot, 4274 N. Eagle Rd. in Boise. Attendees will be able to dunk the All About You dentists to raise money for a wheelchair lift for a Meridian woman. The event offers lots of fun, free food, T-shirts, prizes, drawings and a bounce house.

— Movie Under the Stars: "Despicable Me 2": 7 p.m., Gene Harris Band Shell at Julia Davis Park, free, including games and crafts for kids provided by the Boise Parks & Recreation Mobile Recreation Unit and more.

Note these tips for the event:

Camp chair use - to ensure everyone gets a great view of the screen, attendees wishing to use camp chairs will be asked to sit along the sides of the berm area.

There is free parking in the park lots and additional free parking at the Library! lot after 6 p.m. Don’t park on private property. We would hate for your free experience to become an expensive one if your car is towed.

Leave your pets at home.

Do not drop off your children and leave them unattended.

Lock your bicycles in designated bike racks. Don’t lay your bike on the ground next to you.

Don’t forget bug spray.

Bring a flashlight. After the movie, there will be lighting around the band shell, but the Greenbelt can be dark in places.

Bring a blanket to wrap up in, it can get cold in the evening.

Trash cans and recycle bins will be available; leave the park as clean as you found it.

This is a drug-free family friendly event. No alcohol and no smoking.

— Idaho Youth Academy graduation: 10 a.m., South Junior High School, 3101 W. Cassia St., Boise. The academy, part of the National Guard’s Youth ChalleNGe program, is a state-run residential and post-residential program for Idaho youths, ages 16-18, who have dropped out of high school or are risk of dropping out. This is the program's first graduating class.

— WaterShed Weekend: 10 a.m to 1 p.m., Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve at the corner of Chinden and Maple Grove. Education Stations will be set up along the trail for attendees to learn about the wildlife and wetland functions. Tour the park, observe wildlife with the Golden Eagle Audubon Society, identify plants with a wetlands biologist, make solar prints and eco-art with artist Rachel Murphy, meet artist Mark Baltes and admire the art installation ‘HaBATat’ for bats.

Note: The Boise WaterShed will be closed this day. No dogs allowed in the wetlands.
