Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project is having a benefit show on March 25th, 2016 from 7pm to 10pm at Velo Cult on 1969 NE 42nd Blvd, Portland. Cinder Well, Brenna Sahatijina, and Mistaken for Ghosts will be playing. The event is all ages. There will be a raffle with prizes, and a short presentation by the project's Director, Karen Coulter, about our ecological protection work in Eastern Oregon. Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project is a small environmental non-profit that has been working to protect and restore the ecosystems of Eastern Oregon for over 24 years. We work to stop or modify projects on public lands that threaten ecological integrity and biodiversity, such as logging, road building, livestock grazing, herbicide and biocide use, and mining. BMBP’s geographical focus includes the Blue Mountains in the Malheur, Ochoco, and Umatilla National Forests, and the Eastern Oregon Cascades in the Deschutes National Forest. Funds raised by the benefit will help to support this year’s field season.

Come make Valentines with us! There are a lot of people in Portland who, in their own way, make the city better for biking. Many of them don’t get recognition and some don’t even realize how much they’re helping. This is why the Bicycle Transportation Alliance has a long-held tradition of giving handmade, personalized Valentines to these people. In previous years, we have sent valentines to Stakeholders on NE Multnomah Blvd, PBOT’s Signals and Street Lighting Department, and Franz Bakery drivers and mechanics. We don’t want to announce who, exactly, will be receiving BTA Valentines this year but if you come help us make them, you’ll find out! Sign up to volunteer here: http://btaoregon.force.com/volunteers/GW_Volunteers__VolunteersJobListingFS?Calendar=1&volunteerShiftId=a15i000000DDPGnAAP&jobId=a13i00000071LofAAE&dtMonthFilter=2016-2-8%209:0:0

Cranksgiving is a treasure-hunt food drive – teams visit a list of stores and buy a list of items. Items are donated to Outside In, which serves homeless youth. You don’t have to race to have an amazing time. All are welcome to participate. We will form teams of 2-5 women each out of those that sign up. There will be prizes for each member of the teams for: Best Costumes, First Ones Back, and Biggest Spenders. Cost: Each person on your team will need $10 to buy stuff with – bring extra cash if possible – we’re trying to beat the $1800 Cranksgiving donated last year. Please sign up for the ride at http://puddlecycle.com/cranksgiving/ and use team name: "BTA Women Bike". If you are signing up with a friend, please just email me or post to the board so I can make sure you end up on the same team. Full details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/431247633747548/

Here's your chance to check out Velo Cult's awesome basement screening room. Ever been to a speakeasy?... Enjoy a beer and the cherished local short film, "The House of Sound", a beautiful hommage to a lost community institution, the North Portland record store established in 1964. A collaboration facilitated by Vanessa Renwick's Oregon Department of Kick Ass. The House of Sound is a light handed snapshot of the controversial evolution of North Portland's Williams Avenue corridor. "Renwick’s response to the loss of the House of Sound is characteristically stalwart and unintrusive. Like a kind of hospice nurse of community architecture, she has quietly tended the patient, dressing its wounds, cleaning its body, making room for relatives to view the remains." John Raymond Also showing: "Get out of the Car", a kindred independant film exploring similar stuff in L.A.: https://mubi.com/films/get-out-of-the-car. Vanessa Renwick will be in attendance if her busy schedule allows! http://www.odoka.org/the_work/the_house_of_sound/ http://www.facebook.com/events/577617582309176/

Ride along with Shawn Granton on his TENTH ANNUAL installment of the Palm Tree Ride! Come along for a leisurely tour of the multitude of palm trees and other tropical, evergreen, and just plain exotic vegetation growing in the city. Mostly flat with a hill or two, about 7 miles total. Plenty of stops and possibility of a refreshment break or two. Emphasis on leisurely. We'll end at a food and adult beverage establishment. http://www.facebook.com/events/474240766028348/
