Do you love film, storytelling, park art, and short talks from some of the most amazing conservation and recreation voices?
If so, we want to make sure you know the Choose Your Adventure: Trails, Rivers & the North Cascades 50th Anniversary, where you can Choose Your Adventure. Whether you want to get up close and personal with a large bird of prey, talk with a park ranger, or see some of the epic murals at El Centro de la Raza, they will have something fun planned for you.
October marks the 50th birthday for North Cascades National Park, the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, and the National Trails System Act. To celebrate these achievements and the incredible places they protect, National Parks Conservation Association and partners (that's us) are hosting a special celebration – and you’re invited!
Choose Your Adventure will feature an amazing assortment of programs for you to enjoy. From Scott Kranz’s story of climbing 50 peaks in the North Cascades, to Yesenia Castro’s hit film about enjoying public lands as a first generation American, you’re sure to be inspired. We’ll have family activities, music, food trucks, dessert, beer and more!
In addition to attending the event, they're also looking for a few key volunteers who would love to help. If you're in to volunteer, please let the Seattle City Impact Manager - Linh Thai know. If not, no worries...just come out and enjoy the event.
This event includes fun for the entire family. All ages are welcome!

A great attitude
The Beacon Hill Link light rail station is less than a block from El Centro de la Raza. Street parking is available.
Inclement Weather Plan :
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
