|Directions: SLEEPING LADY in Fairfax - http://www.twobirdcafe.com/location.html|
WED AUGUST 5, 6-8PM, we will gather for our regular get-together at the lovely SLEEPING LADY Cafe in Fairfax.... join us to share a bite to eat and get the latest news and updates from the field on fish rescue, water quality monitoring, habitat restoration & native plant nursery, rainwater harvesting projects, creek policy developments and actions - and, always, the new projects we are working on too.
This is a great opportunity to learn about ways to get more involved in our campaign to save Lagunitas coho!
next MONDAY August 10th, 6:30-9PM in Woodacre the larger watershed community will meet for a public forum to review and provide feedback on the new draft Salmon Enhancement Plan to improve conditions for coho salmon and steelhead trout in the San Geronimo Valley. The public forum will take place on from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the Woodacre Improvement Club, 3 Garden Way in Woodacre.
The salmon need you! PLEASE ATTEND, LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS PROCESS AND HELP PROVIDE CRUCIAL COMMENTS & COMMUNITY INPUT INTO THIS PLAN! The Plan is available for your review at http://www.marinwatersheds.org/app_pages/view/3.html#program_summary
The agenda for the public forum includes:
1) A review of the plan objectives & goals; 2) A discussion on what salmon and steelhead need to thrive, and how to achieve these conditions in our watershed through County and landowner actions; 3) Q & A with watershed scientists, planners and County staff
San Geronimo Valley residents live in a unique and beautiful watershed! Studies indicate that the Lagunitas Creek watershed (to which San Geronimo is a tributary) produces up to 15% of the State’s coho population. Steelhead trout, designated as threatened, also find important habitat in San Geronimo Valley. The potential benefit of protecting and restoring fish habitat in San Geronimo Valley is huge and will have important ramifications for the entire Central California population of coho salmon and steelhead.
