Editor’s Note: The 2020 Spring Kickoff Event has been canceled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

If you’re a fan of the incredible trails at Beacon Hill and Camp Sekani, don’t miss this annual party to raise funds in support of the final stage of the Make Beacon Public campaign. Evergreen East’s Spring Kickoff Movie and Fundraiser, held this year on March 29 at the Washington Cracker Company Building downtown Spokane, is a great chance for the region’s mountain biking community to come together for an important cause. Evergreen East members have been working on protecting Beacon’s trail system for over a decade, and now is the time to show public support for a plan to work with local land owners and public lands agencies to protect much of the trail system and connect existing blocks of public land into one larger park. Festivities include food, beer, wine, and a silent auction, as well as a premier of the mountain bike movie “Return to Earth” by Anthill Films. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the event may sell out so don’t delay. Tickets available for $15 online. More info at Evergreeneast.org.
