Meeting 24 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

This weekend we're sending a trip out to Cherry Springs, maybe the coolest state park in Pennsylvania.  It's one of the darkest places in the country, on clear nights you can see the Milky Way.  Shit's crazy.  There's a bunch of cool hiking to be had during the day, but gosh diddly damn the stars are so beautiful out there I can't even describe it.  This trip will be leaving Friday and coming back Sunday

We're also going to be having sign ups for a short hike with Free the Planet on the Rachel Carson trail just outside of Pittsburgh.  There's a fracking well pad that's being built next to the trail named after Pittsburgh's most famous and influential environmentalist.  We're going to go check that fuckery out and talk about the impacts of fracking and the natural gas industry at large has on the environment and community around it.  We'll be heading out around 10am Sunday, and we'll be back in Oakland before 5.  

Hope everyone has a good week!

Best,
Jon
