When Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law 50 years ago, he helped create a mechanism to protect wilderness areas in the United States, and today, over 106 million acres of federal land are protected under that act. To acknowledge the achievement, Cascadia Wildlands will lead a hike into the Proposed Devil’s Staircase Wilderness on Saturday. The potential wilderness area is between the Umpqua and Smith rivers east of Reedsport, and its forests are home to Pacific giant salamanders, river otters, marbled murrelets, Chinook salmon and more. The hike is limited to 12 people, so for those who miss their chance this time, another hike will take place on Aug. 9.

The Proposed Devil’s Staircase Wilderness Hike is all day Saturday, July 26. For more info & to pre-register, call 517-4906 or see cascwild.org. — Amy Schneider

A giant gorilla is about to terrorize the streets of downtown Eugene, and you won’t want to miss it. On July 30, the city of Eugene and Bijou Cinemas will show the 1933 version of King Kong at Kesey Square — we all know how this one ends, but you can never watch a classic movie too many times, right? 

King Kong plays 8:30-10pm Wednesday, July 30, at Kesey Square in downtown Eugene, call 682-6347. FREE. — Amy Schneider

This Saturday evening, the sounds of Japanese Taiko drumming and traditional folk dancing will fill the air at Alton Baker Park, where the Japanese American Association of Lane County will hold its annual Obon and Taiko Festival. Each dance will begin with a lesson from Seiko Sensei, a longtime Obon dance instructor in the Eugene/Springfield area, and observers get the chance to participate in these storytelling dances. James Anderson, president of the Japanese American Association of Lane County, says that the Eugene Taiko group plays drums all over the state, so head to Alton Baker for a chance to see the group play locally.

The Obon & Taiko Festival is 5-9pm Saturday, July 26, at Alton Baker Park. FREE. — Amy Schneider

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!
