Indie Giving 2017 Survival Guide

indieg

The indie giving event is a special program designed to help independent game developers attend the 2017 Game Developer Conference in San Francisco. Everyone who signs up will get the chance to take part in a charity event to support a local organization!  

The goal is to show gamers know how to have fun, and give back. This year we’ll be helping the San Francisco Parks Conservancy clear out many invasive species from the Presidio of San Francisco. The Presidio is home to 20 rare plant species, including five protected by the Endangered Species Act. Participating in habitat restoration by removing invasive species and re-vegetating with native plants is the most proactive way to help conserve this landscape. Our work will be outdoors, and last a few hours, which includes meet and greets beforehand, and closing comments afterward.
