ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE IN A GATEWAY WORLD.
COYOTE DISC GOLF
Disc golf is one of those rare sports that can be played and enjoyed at any age, in all weathers, all seasons and alone or in a group. The generous culture and the ease of learning made this sport an easy choice for a Gateway program. Gateway supports many tournaments in the region and at home, provides lessons and equipment to the community at large, and supports the development of new disc golf courses from Curry County to Klamath, including the only beachfront course in the nation.
FOUND AGATE THEATER
Found Agate Theater Company produces plays and performances right here in Del Norte County! Found Agate focuses on self-awareness through creative self-expression as well as the exploration of self through theater, performance and storytelling.
Gateway Education Board Members
Ron came to Crescent City on the wings of AmeriCorps in 2000 and has been in love with the area ever since. His background is in the performing arts, sports and meditation. Indulging a desire to share the things he experienced in AmeriCorps led him to develop a summer camp that became the centerpiece of a non-profit with a self-awareness focus.
Kirsten is a mother of three, a healer and lover of the outdoors. She was invited to help start a fundraiser to help kids who could not afford summer camp and became an 18 year member of Gateway Education's board through Pastels in the Park. She is now the artistic director of Gateway's Found Agate Theater company.
