Prescription: Nature. Can Time in the Great Outdoors Save Your Life?

Can an hour a day keep the doctor away? After a year in the great indoors, no one can deny the therapeutic benefits of nature and wide, open spaces. America’s national parks other public lands are reporting record numbers of visitors for a second year in a row—but what about accessing nature’s benefits closer to home? Can we all get the nature we need, nearby? The answer likely depends on your zip code, maybe even your street number. A Eugene-based startup, NatureQuant, is combining data and infrared technology to create vegetation “heat maps” that show how healthy a specific location…

We’re Raising Funds to Support Our Mission!

July 8, 2021

Dear City Club Members and Friends,

     In these times, civic discussion is more important than ever, and cost should not be a barrier to participation.

     City Club is raising funds this summer so we can host live meetings again and Come Back Stronger than ever! We’ll provide our virtual meetings as well as our live meetings—a hybrid model. Thus, we’ll incur the expenses of hosting live meetings as well as the need to purchase technology to reach our virtual audience. The board has also reduced the cost of membership. We do this with the goals of expanding membership and creating access for all.

     I am pleased and proud to report to you that we fulfilled our promises to last year’s donors. We had a year of excellent virtual programming, redeveloped our website, provided podcasts, diversified and maintained membership and sponsors. We are working hard to provide access to civic discussions.

     As we kick off our new campaign, I’m writing to ask you for a generous donation. We have acquired matching funds to make your donation twice as valuable. The group of supporters and board members listed below is providing more than $15,000 to launch our campaign. Your contribution will help City Club reach its goals.

     Join us as we Come Back Stronger and learn from each other in this wonderful community. Please contribute to City Club online or by mailing a check to City Club of Eugene at P. O. Box 12084, Eugene, OR 97440.

     Thanks so much for your support of City Club of Eugene’s mission of building community vision through open inquiry.
