Potluck and Work Party, Sunday Jan. 20

Please join us at the Bear Mountain Tree Sit this Sunday as we begin to expand and renovate the camp! A community member donated a truck load of recycled building materials this week, and we are making great plans, including a sound stage for a live music event. Other supporters have been brainstorming ways to either stop the interchange or delay it while we try to resolve the conflict by legal and political means.

Folks can bring a dish to pass, new ideas, great energy, friends, kids, dogs, musical instruments, and donations if they wish.
