Happy July everybody! Let’s not let Karl the Fog bog us down. There’s tons of opportunities going on keeping true with the Net Impact mission. Some quick updates:    

1. Many thanks to Winsy Wong for representing our chapter at the Impactathon in Palo Alto. Here are some pictures from the event:

2. We just received an invite from Paul Collier at the Professional Chapter to a BBQ networking event on July 19th in Golden Gate Park. This is a nice and relaxed way to meet and network with likeminded professionals around SF.Details here.    

 
3. In other news, our chapter has gained control of the SFGreen Drinks Calendar. We are the first to know what’s going on with the Professional Chapter, the Women’s Environmental Network, and SF Green Drinks! Click on the +Google Calendar button at the bottom right-hand corner to add these events to your personal GCalendar and have easy, passive access to this network. 
 
4. Mackenzie is going on an awesome hike of Mt. Tam on August 3rd, sponsored by the non-profit At the Crossroads: Street Youth Support. For those who have expressed interest to me in exploring Muir Woods, this is a perfect opportunity, as well as a feel-good way to support homeless youth. 
 
5. Interested in planting a garden in your back yard, but aren’t sure about the quality of your soil? The New Liberation Community Garden is running free soil sample analyses. This to me is a beautiful example of one of the many amazing, spiritually rich, environmentally conscious communities in San Francisco.

Summer is upon us, and we have many opportunities on the horizon. But before we dive in, be sure to check out USF faculty Phillip Ross’s innovative work with mushroom materials as a means to replace plastic

 

Tree Tour 6.8.14

Net Impacters Winsy Wong and Jamil Adas enjoy a lovely foggy Sunday stroll amidst some Monterey Cypress on the Tree Tour of Land’s End, hosted by the Friends of the Urban Forest.

Tomorrow morning I will be joining the SF Surfrider Foundation for a clean up at Ocean Beach. This is a great way to steward the beautiful beaches that we are lucky enough to have and feel awesome on a Sunday morning. Food and drinks afterward at the Beach Chalet. I can provide rides for anybody in the middle of the city on westward. Contact if interested. Event details:

Here is an awesome opportunity just in from the Ecological Society of America. Quoth the ESA: 
 
“As part of the 99th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America ( August 10-15, 2014) several universities are working with ESA along with local institutions and agencies to coordinate a large land planning demonstration project that celebrates the American River Parkway running through downtown Sacramento, providing a lasting example of how ecology, urban planning, floodplain management, and conservation work together to increase urban resilience and human well-being. We would like to invite your students or recent graduates to participate in this exciting demonstration project. In particular, we are currently accepting applicants for Student Research Fellows. This is a paid opportunity and the deadline to apply is June 17th. ”
