Kurt Erickson, a long time environmental activist in Sonoma County, passed away recently. Kurt was a founding member of the Salmon Creek Watershed Council and worked many long and hard hours for the watershed. He organized watershed days and attended countless meetings. And always wore a smile. Kurt worked hard for the creation and continued existence of the Blucher Creek Watershed Council. He personally created and installed the first Blucher Creek watershed signs and was instrumental in writing grant proposals. Kurt will be missed by the environmental community.
