WRLF participants have an opportunity to watch the full documentary of Earth Seasoned…#GapYear, the inspiring story of five young urban women spending a gap year between high school and college living semi-primitively in a remote mountainside wilderness in Oregon. Told mainly through the story of Tori Davis, a teenager with learning disabilities, the film chronicles the group’s four seasons in the woods as part of the Caretaker nature program, a program of Coyote Trails School of Nature.

Ripples into Waves: Creating Change to Improve Ourselves and Our World

We've invited one of the warmest and most engaging speakers we've ever encountered to help us kick off the forum with a massive infusion of energy and ideas. He's developed an opening session that is highly interactive and guaranteed to lift our spirits and maximize the potential of our time together.

This isn't a typical keynote where you sit and listen; you will be up and moving around with plenty of time for networking and quality conversations.
