Tues, March 5: Friends of Gualala River invites you to a Public Forum

FoGR Public Forum - March 5, 2019


Tuesday, March 5, 2019
5 to 7 p.m.

Gualala Community Center
47950 Center St., Gualala, CA 95445

You are invited to join members of Friends of Gualala River (FoGR) at a Public Forum at the Gualala Community Center on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Jeanne Jackson, author of Mendonoma Sightings Throughout the Year, and ICO columnist, will begin the program portion of the evening at 5:30 p.m. with a slideshow presentation of the beauty of the Gualala River. Learn about the animals that live in and alongside the river, along with some of the unusual and rare plants growing there. You’ll see perhaps the oldest old-growth redwood tree in Sonoma County, the McCabe tree. Jeanne will also show you what happened when a couple pitched a tent right next to the river.

Dr. Peter Baye will give a presentation on the importance of the Gualala River’s floodplain, with the top three things we can do to protect it.

Peter will give an update on two controversial timber harvest plans, “Dogwood” and “Little.” The audience will have a chance to ask questions of Peter and Jeanne.

Chris Poehlmann will show his Topo Table project, which will be installed at the Visitors Center of Gualala Point Regional Park once it is complete. Chris will show some of the wonderfully varied uses of this Topo Table.

Lynn Walton will present FoGR’s watershed education and sign project.

There will be exhibit tables and photos of the watershed, and refreshments will be served.

Come and learn about the exciting news of Friends of Gualala River.
