The science is clear – climate change is here, and it’s not pretty. Droughts, wildfires, storms, floods, sea level rise… you name it. The good news is that we already have the knowledge, and the know-how, to turn the tide toward a more sustainable future.  What is needed is the political will to act.  It will take all of us, working together, to turn this vision into a reality. 

Please join us over two fun-filled weekends as we explore the Bay Area by foot and by bicycle across six counties.  Each event will feature inspiring speakers, climate points of interest along the way, a delicious lunch, and prizes.

Your participation will directly support the climate work of 350 Bay Area as well as local groups Napa Climate NOW!, 350 Sonoma, 350Marin, 350 Contra Costa, 350 East Bay, and 350 San Francisco and allied groups.

Basic Registration Fee: $35
