Mattole Forest Defenders Benefit Dinner
Sunday, September 28th @ 6:00pm, Speakers and music @ 7pm

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/ local cooks
* Presentations by Mattole forest defenders
* Live acoustic music variety show!
* Magazine and literature tables.

Donations 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!
