4-H is a great complement to homeschooling.

iNaturalist Happy Hour SF East Bay

Oakland, CA

iNaturalist Happy Hour SF East Bay

Grab a drink with iNaturalist folks in the Bay Area and put faces to usernames! If you like adult beverages and the idea of meeting some of your fellow local iNat users doesn't fill you with dread, this is the event for you. If the idea *does* fill you with dread or a deep and abiding sense of not caring, that's cool too! We'll see you online. Never heard of iNat? Check it out!

We (the iNat staff who work in the Bay Area) are hoping to do this monthly, alternating between SF (near the California Academy of Sciences) and Oakland. Locations will probably vary, maybe the date too, so watch this space.

You don't have to sign up for a Meetup account to keep track of our events! Meetup publishes an iCal / Google Calendar feed you can integrate into your calendar. There are also RSS, Atom, and Outlook feeds linked at the bottom of the Meetup calendar.

Los Angeles Stoics

Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles Stoics

We're promoting a philosophical community made of reasonable and kind people.

Website: www.losangelesstoics.com

Patreon: www.patreon.com/losangelesstoics


This is a group dedicated to reading and talking about Stoicism — philosophical works by all Stoics from Antiquity to Modernity. The readings and the pace at which we do them will be dictated by the group; the discussions will be primarily 'socratic;' and the atmosphere should be very comfortable and welcoming. The reasons you might have for joining us may include A) you want to critically engage in Stoic theory for the sheer intellectual pleasure of it; B) you want to learn about and apply Stoic practice for the therapeutic benefits; or C) both! We are currently meeting both IN-PERSON and ONLINE.
