How much do you know about the rainforest: in science, in literature, even in sports? Everyone has a shot at winning North Coast Land Conservancy’s (NCLC) first virtual trivia night at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29. 

You just need to be able to connect to the Zoom platform via a tablet, smartphone, or computer. Join by yourself or round up some friends and form a team: team members can be together or in different locations, anywhere in the world, conferring about your answers offline via text.

The winning team will receive a fabulous gift basket containing a pound of Sleepy Monk coffee, two Rainforest Reserve face coverings and a box of Rainforest Reserve notecards illustrated by Astoria artist Sally Lackaff.

The evening is a fundraiser for NCLC, which is working to raise $10 million to create a 3,500-acre Rainforest Reserve adjacent to Oswald West State Park. Grab your favorite beverage, get online, and see how much you really know about the rainforest—magical and otherwise.
