GALA AT THE DRIVE-IN
Sunday, November 1, 2020
5:30pm - 9:00pm
27490 SW 95th Avenue, Wilsonville, OR 97070
COVID-19 has given us some hard challenges, but we are not letting this defeat our goal of raising youth into tomorrow's environmental leaders.
In 2020, we're getting creative and innovative! First, we successfully converted this year's deployments to virtual events. We tasked our youth to research different aspects of our ecosystem and the reasons for the growing concern about climate change. They shared their knowledge and advocacy in virtual online presentations to their fellow peers and veteran mentors.
To add more fun ... we are hosting our 2020 gala event at the Community Drive-In in Wilsonville, OR!!!! We will be enjoying recaps of past deployments ON THE BIG SCREEN as well as a feature length film; we’ll hear from Chad Brown, Founder and President of Soul River Inc., and some of the youth participants and veterans; we will have a paddle raise auction. Of course, we will also have a delicious catered dinner, wonderful wine and refreshments. We will be socially distancing while enjoying the show from inside our cars by tuning into an FM transmitting station!

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
