Nolsapalooza in the Pacific Northwest

By Rich Brame on May 6, 2010

On May 1st a group of NOLS alumni, friends, supporters, staff and prospective students met at the NOLS base in Conway, Washington for a day of service projects, mini-skills classes, great food, camaraderie, and a showing of the historic film "30 Days to Survival".

The weather was mixed, but spirits were high as the intrepid team of volunteers tramped area lanes looking for trash. We pulled plenty of cans and other assorted items off the roadsides. Notable finds included a soccer and baseball!

Participants also played around on the climbing wall, reviewed NOLS' leadership curriculum, and baked up a whack of field-style pizzas.

Thanks to everyone who made our first "Nolsapalooza" in Washington such a success. Watch for similar alumni networking and reunion opportunities throughout the year. See: and see you there!
