Eve is doing this to raise awareness for environmental issues and we will be there to support her in her final hours while having a picnic and discussing environmental issues important to our community. You will have the chance to chat with other like minded individuals and learn what The Metro West Wilderness Society is working on while enjoying watching Eve complete her challenge
