Join the Outdoor Program and the greater outdoor community in observing and celebrating the International Day of Climate Action.  We're supporting a student-created trip meant to help bring awareness to the number 350:

We'll meet on Saturday morning at Catlin.  From Catlin, we'll ride bikes (carrying our gear in panniers and a trailer) to the Max station and take Max east to the third-to-the-last stop.  When we depart the Max, we'll bike through Troutdale, over the Sandy River and along the Columbia River Historic Highway to to the Coopey Falls/Angel's rest Trailhead (17 mile bike).  At that point, we'll lock the bikes up, hike up to Angels
to Angels rest, (2.2 miles to one of the most prominent viewpoints in the Gorge, with a spectacular 270-degree panorama).  Atop Angels Rest, we'll fly kites that we've decorated and that demand environmental action.  Anybody traveling either direction on I-84 will see us!  Saturday night, we'll camp out in a primitive campsite, and then return to Portland on Sunday.

Not only is this a FREE TRIP, it is CATLIN'S FIRST OVERNIGHT TRIP EVER THAT'S ENTIRELY PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AND HUMAN-POWERED--EMISSIONS FREE!!!

I've already purchased "350" buttons.  When people sign up, they can get their button and be a part of this grassroots/political/environmental experience.
