Volunteers Needed for Book Launch Party!

We’re celebrating the release of "The North Cascades: Finding Beauty and Renewal in the Wild Nearby". Inspiring speakers, stirring photography and a silent auction will transport attendees to the North Cascades. We need several volunteers to make the event and auction run smoothly.
