During the last year, Friends of Gualala River (FoGR) and its all-volunteer membership made great strides with countless hours of work to protect the river and advocate for all the plant and animal species that are part of the watershed.
We have used our donated monies to continue the battle to stop egregious floodplain logging plans by hiring attorneys and expert witnesses; we have become our own registered non-profit organization, and we continue to contribute projects of great educational value for all who visit and enjoy the river.
The river needs a voice in many ways and we are dedicated to continue our efforts. I am proud, as a fly fisherman and a local citizen, to be part of such a great group of people who realize the need to protect such a precious part of our coastal ecosystem that contributes to Earth’s fragile balance.
I am grateful for all who have contributed time, hard work and money and I look forward to working with everyone to continue to enhance and protect the Gualala River. We are lucky to have such a wonderful place to share and protect.
