Where the Wild Things Are: A Celebration of Wilderness in the Applegate Valley

Join us for a fun-filled day and evening fundraiser to support the wildlands of the Applegate Valley. We've got an incredible line up of family-friendly and educational activities in the afternoon, followed by food, libations, live music, and presentations about ANN and the issues affecting our region.

The Applegate Neighborhood Network is sponsoring this local community event and fundraiser.  All proceeds from the event will benefit the work of ANN and the protection of our forests, rivers and streams. The event is being planned to bring the community together in a celebration of local wilderness and to support those who are working for its protection. Come join us for a good time and consider donating to the efforts of ANN.
