This event is a benefit for local non-profits caring for animals in San Juan County. Proceeds will be shared equally to Orcas Animal Protection Society, Island Haven, and Wolf Hollow.
Orcas Cyclovia will be 9:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday, September 28, following after the Global Climate Strike called by Swedish youth Greta Thunberg. Let’s move our bodies and give our cars a rest!
