During these current times, being an environmental nonprofit and volunteering for one looks very different than ever before. Around this time last year, we were in full swing with our annual stewardship events: beach clean ups along the Columbia River, removing invasive ivy from our parks, and hosting free leak check events for our Don't Drip and Drive program.

While our on-the-ground volunteer work is on hold for now, we wanted to reflect on the accomplishments and fun we had last year. We would like to give a huge thank you to our incredible volunteers, supporters, and local communities. We could not do this work without you! Together, we have made great progress to rejuvenating our natural places and urban spaces.

We look forward to the day we can safely come together and continue our restoration and protection efforts again. To stay up to date, please like our Facebook and Instagram pages. 

Until next month,
Sunrise, Bethany, Celina, and Tom
Now Screening: The Story of Plastic
We are excited to offer a free film screening for The Story of Plastic - a sweeping look at the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. Spanning three continents, the film illustrates the ongoing catastrophe: fields full of garbage, veritable mountains of trash, rivers and seas clogged with waste, and skies choked with the poisonous emissions from plastic production and processing.
 
Click here to watch the film. 
Link is good from May 20th until May 26th at 8:30pm!

Please note: We get a set number of views so if you start it and have to step away just pause it so it does not count as a new view. If you try and watch it and it does not allow you to watch send us a message and we will try and add more views.

Virtual Food & Film Series 
Our Food & Film Series was just beginning when our world began to change. While we miss connecting, eating pizza, and watching environmental films with you , we are happy to announce that our June film will be virtually shown on June 23rd for a 24 hour period!

Additionally, we are pulling out some films from our archives and will be having a virtual film screening once a week starting the week of May 25th through mid-July.

We are working on getting everything finalized and will provide you with a film schedule and links as soon as we can. Follow our
Facebook and Instagram for updates! 
Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month – a celebration and acknowledgement of the numerous cultures, contributions, and achievements of Asian Pacific Americans  in the United States.

Asian Pacific Americans have a deep connection and history with the environment, but their presence within the U.S. environmental field has been largely invisible. Asian Pacific Americans also experience environmental injustices similar to those disproportionately carried by other people of color. However, thanks to people like Miya YoshitaniVarshini Prakash, and Andrea “Chuey” Chu, that is all changing. 

To honor Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we will be sharing the stories and voices of those that are involved with the environmental movement, creating a stronger, more representative and effective path forward. Follow along via Facebook and Instagram.
