In the spirit of Esther Webster, who was both a talented artist and an intrepid female outdoor adventurer for her time we will host an evening conversation on how women support one another in engaging in outdoor recreation and the variety of ways that women draw creative inspiration from time spent outdoors. Join us for food and drinks, mingling, and presentations by Catharine Copass and Lauren Dukes, co-founders of Team Laser Kittens, and local plein air artists and photographers. About the Presenters: Catharine Copass is a self proclaimed "sheredder with a bike for every mood, BMX, DH, trail, gravel and road" and a huge force behind the Port Angeles Pumptrack. Lauren Dukes has lived in Port Angeles, WA since 2003. A longtime surfer, she transitioned to mountain biking to better fit a "responsible adult" lifestyle. Through her husband’s racing, she became immersed in the PNW Enduro mountain bike scene. Of which she spent over 5 years traveling to races, working at the races, riding new places and meeting rad women who could ride! It really opened her MTB opportunities to the family of lady riders out there. As her mountain biking lifestyle has evolved, she has become passionate about trail building. Her local Port Angeles trails offer some of the best terrain and dirt ever! She has been thrilled to see the growth of local lady riders, as well as their stoke for trail building.
