Wild Equity Institute
From March 10 - 31, Patagonia wants to hear from you. Every year, the brand's 27 U.S. stores receive $5,000 to distribute among three local environmental groups of their choosing during the Voice Your Choice campaign. Everyone's a winner, and all you have to do is vote for your favorite. Bonus: you don't have to shell out a dime … unless you find yourself smitten with a ski jacket or climbing gear while you cast your vote in-store.
Start off the year going back to nature with the Wild Equity Institute this Saturday at the Golden Gate National Parks Endangered Species Big Year Bike Ride & Kick-off Celebration. The day begins with a morning bike ride that will explore some of the endangered flora and fauna in the city, including Presidio Manzanita and and the Southern Sea Otter. Co-sponsored by the SF Bicycle Coalition, the ride departs at 9:30am from Bazaar Cafe (21st Ave. & California) and ends at the Wild Equity Institute's kick-off celebration at Sports Basement Presidio.
