This morning I spoke with Michael Kauffmann about the Bigfoot Trail, a 300+ mile trek through some of the the most beautiful parts of Northern California and Southern Oregon. With the summer on the way there are many opportunities to get involved with improving the trail and just enjoying it. More info at bigfoottrail.org

This week a new play is premiering in Humboldt!
Jane Doe in Wonderland is accurately described as "An entertaining, educational, and accessible production created through a collaboration between local theater alumni and anti sex trafficking nonprofit Game Over to start a dialogue on the subject using the metaphor of Alice in Wonderland."
Erin Johnston, Grace Booth, and Kate Tobie started this project a year and a half ago as a part of their community service project through Dell'Arte. They continued to develop the project as a way to garner awareness and education in communities.

Jax Cat and Gabriel Salazar came in to talk about our local chapter of Engineers Without Borders. Their annual fundraiser, The Humboldt Homebrew Festival, is coming up on Saturday, April 1st at the Arcata Community Center (2-8p). Funds raised from last year's festival helped send seven EWB folks to Camoapa, Nicaragua to drill a well for the hospital! Jax and Gabriel discussed their experiences in Camoapa and other EWB projects we can support by coming to the Homebrew Fest.
