Take a free tour of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior!

rainbow_warriorThanks to SWCS parent Christy Hawkins for letting us know about an event this weekend that ties in nicely with this year’s Water theme!

This weekend November 2 & 3 from 10 am – 5pm, Greenpeace’s state of the art sailing ship, the Rainbow Warrior, will be in Vancouver, WA for a free tour. This 190 ft. ship is the newest generation of Greenpeace’s historic fleet and includes some of the most environmentally-friendly sailing technology available.

The Rainbow Warrior is coming to the Portland-region for the first time on its West Coast Tour and will be open to the public. The ship will be at Vancouver Landing, West of 100 Columbia Street, Vancouver, WA on Saturday, November 2 and Sunday, November 3 from 10am-5pm for a behind the scenes look at how the ship works and how it’s helping tackle the biggest issues affecting our climate, oceans, forests, and global community. Also learn about local campaigns, including how individuals across Oregon and Washington are standing up to stop coal export terminals in the Pacific Northwest.

Sunday morning will include family friendly activities like face painting, costumes for taking photos, custom temporary tattoos and stickers, and coloring sheets. Tours of the ship will also be adapted for a younger audience.

Please note that tours have uneven surfaces and steep stairs.

Tour schedule:
Saturday, November 2, 2013: 10am-5pm
Sunday, November 3, 2013: 10am-5pm
