South Dakota natives and Augustana alumni Rob and Robyn (Clemensen) Green, both class of 2011, have built a life chasing each other around the planet, from working in grimy third-world operating rooms to guiding in Central American jungles. Their love of travel and adventure led the pair to bring together a group of fellow adventure seekers for an evening of Adventure Stories, an event to raise money for Project Origin, a project aiming to plant one million trees around the world. The event is set for 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 12, at Icon Lounge in downtown Sioux Falls. Admission is free, however donations for Project Origin will be accepted.
