Thanks to everyone who participated in Green Friday!
You may remember when our REI partners did something different on Black Friday last year—they closed the co-op’s doors and invited the nation to opt outside with them. And more than a million people did just that. It really caught the attention of our community, and we participated by leading a public hike. This year, we’re joining REI outside again, and we’d like you to opt outside with us. Let’s skip the malls and celebrate life outdoors. Here are three ways to join in the celebration:
Special Guided Hike With Sempervirens Fund, 11/25/16 (SOLD OUT, waitlist open)
This special guided-hike explores the lands slated to become the newest addition to Castle Rock State Park that will include new entrance facilities to make the park more accessible to the public in the future. This hike is co-hosted by our partners at Portola and Castle Rock Foundation. Get complete hike information here (SOLD OUT, waitlist open).
