Pride Hike

on the 804

Enjoy the ocean, the air, and friends on a beautiful and invigorating ocean-side hike (or stroll) on the historic 804 trail. The trail is level and has benches along the way so all abilities are accommodated.

The historic Yachats 804 Trail probably first served as a footpath for tribal people. It later became part of County Road 804, which included the 7-mile stretch of beach between Yachats and Waldport at low tide. County Road 804 served as the settler’s route of travel between the farmland of the upper Yachats River valley and Waldport’s Alsea Bay until the 1930s and the completion of Hwy 101.

Negotiation and Consent Class

with Leland

Whether you are approaching someone new or talking to a longtime partner, having common language and expectations is incredibly important! Come learn some strategies for opening up your conversations. We’ll talk about the hanky code, go over checklists or possible activities, role-play negotiation scenarios, and save some time for questions and answers.

About Leland: Leland has an in-depth history with the sex-positive community. She has organized events, judged leather contests, and written many articles on a wide range of fun topics. Nowadays, you’re more likely to find her hanging out with the bees on her farm.
