ES 351: Ethnic Minorities in Oregon had the unique opportunity to support an event called South Corvallis Community Celebration, organized by Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services, a local non-profit. Not only did the 24 students volunteer their time to the many booths at the event, they also were required to read "Redesigning a Neighborhood Park to Increase Physical Activity: A Community-Based Participatory Approach" beforehand. The class explores a diverse range of course materials which allow students to learn about the ethnic and regional diversity in Oregon throughout its history. This particular event highlighted the diverse community in south Corvallis which came together to transform a local park into a safe and fun place for families to gather.

Voting on issues which are important to the community and would be utilized in the future to develop policies.
Fortunately, the van driver was saved from imminent death by dinosaur and was able to drive the students back to campus.
