Mattole Forest Defenders Benefit DinnerAdded to the calendar on Tuesday Sep 16th, 2014 2:45 PM
Saturday, September 27th @ 6:00pm / $10-20 donation
Come out and listen to stories about the inspiring actions that forest defenders in Humboldt County have taken to protect old growth and never-before-logged forest in the Mattole River watershed from Humboldt Redwood Company’s green-washed, "FSC Certified" logging plans.
* Vegetarian dinner w/ India Joze & local cooks
* Presentations by Mattole forest defenders
* Live acoustic music variety show (Pale Robin, Burl Wood, & others TBA)
* Local artists print sale
All proceeds from this event will go to the forest defenders, who currently are maintaining a logging road blockade and tree-sit in a very remote region. They also are requesting donations of: raingear, non-perishable food (cans are too heavy), large and small backpacks, and climbing gear. Donations may be brought to the event and are very appreciated!
