Outdoor Nation Summer Youth Summits Culminate in San Francisco
Youth-led Movement for the Outdoors Plans Agenda—with more than $100,000 in Dedicated Funding for Youth Project Ideas—to Expand Access, Activity, and Appreciation
San Francisco, California – Outdoor Nation, the youth-led movement championing the outdoors, is coming to San Francisco, the fifth and final stop on the series of 2011 Youth Summits. For many reasons—access, cultural relevance, education, time, budget cuts—America’s youth is losing touch with the outdoors. Outdoor Nation is empowering the Millennial generation to address the issues head-on and develop their own solutions to connecting youth with the outdoors.
The three-day Summit, co-hosted by The Presidio Trust and the National Park Service, begins on July 29 at 12:00pm at the Presidio’s Fort Scott. A diverse group of more than 200 youth leaders aged 16 to 28 is expected in San Francisco, the Northwest Regional Summit. Delegates were chosen from online applications as well as nominations from Outdoor Nation partners.
Delegates will discuss regional outdoor issues and brainstorm project ideas to remove barriers to participation in the outdoors. Youth participants will vote for the top ideas in each region. The Outdoor Foundation will invest more than $10,000 in projects—a total of $100,000 for all the projects that result from the summits—with support from the National Park Service’s Rivers and Trails and Conservation Assistance National Programs.
Delegates will also address the deep budget cuts and unprecedented closures facing America’s State Parks, Outdoor Nation’s national partner and its top cause for 2011.
Ever more deets, after the jump
[UPDATE: The Tenderloin Geographic Society takes note - dude’s still at it…]
This guy sets his table up out there some knights. Not sure if he’s doing street chess the likes of which you’ll learn about in this bit from Chris Roberts.
You ought to head over to Garden Alley (the driver’s friend, seriously) some evening and see if he’s up for a match.
Never seen him actually playing anyone else tho….
Reminds me of Omega Man, playing chess and looking out for the zombies…
[UPDATE: I can now say that I've seen somebody playing with him, once anyway.]

Interactive Wii Party Airstream West Coast Tour Rolls Into San Francisco on Dec. 11
WHAT: It’s not often that holiday shoppers can gather together for a free, hands-on look at one of the season’s most remarkable games. Families and friends in the San Francisco area will be on their feet and having a blast when Nintendo of America’s extraordinary Wii Party Airstream West Coast Tour makes a stop at
Four Embarcadero Center on SATURDAY – one of only five scheduled stops in the region.
Consumers of all ages and backgrounds are invited to experience the one-of-a-kind social fun of the new Wii Party video game aboard a special Nintendo-themed 15-foot Airstream trailer.

Created exclusively for the popular Wii system, Wii Party is designed to get families and friends on their feet and having fun together. The game features 13 party game modes and more than 80 entertaining minigames, some of which take the action from the TV screen into the living room.
For example, “Animal Tracker” challenges players to pick up the Wii Remote making a particular animal sound, while “Hide ‘n’ Hunt” asks players to locate a controller that’s been cleverly hidden by another player. Whether they’re playing cooperatively or competitively, Wii Party gives every player a turn in the spotlight by putting their customized Mii characters at the center of the action.
