Katie B. started this group because "I find it a challenge to meet like minded people in my area".
The purpose of the group is for intelligent conversations, sharing of ideas and creative stimulation. We meet once a month in a municipal park in Auburn, CA. The area has such a great bounty of recreational and natural beauty.
Who should join? Tolerant open minds of all ages. We strongly encourage reality-based topics and ideas, that is those with a basis on objective evidence. In practice, our conversations often revolve around current events and topics.
People who enjoy discussions about the arts, sustainable living, literature, liberal politics, our planet, travel, science and academics, preservation, creative pursuits, fitness, cooking, garden/farming and local activities.
This is a secular group and we tend not to encourage theology. While networking is encouraged, shameless sales or self promoting is not welcome.
