This group is dedicated to raising awareness about the benefits ( human, animal, and environmental) of a vegan lifestyle. Raw foodists and vegetarians are welcome. Others who wish to learn more about a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle are welcome to join us as well! We are interested in meeting like minded friends to share info, socialize, enjoy the great outdoors, and share potlucks. We encourage an interest in animal advocacy = education, demonstrations ( your ideas?) as a means of speaking out for those who can not speak for themselves.
