Green Valley Creek Water Resources Public Meeting – Tuesday, November 30, 6 pm

The Russian River Coho Water Resources Partnership (Patnership) is pleased

to announce a public informational workshop to share what we have been

enaged in to support local water supply and conservation issues in the Green

Valley Creek Watershed. The Partnership is comprised of staff from the Gold

Ridge and Sotoyome RCDs, the Center for Ecosystem Management and Restoration

(CEMAR), the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center’s WATER Institute (OAEC), the

University of California’s Cooperative Extension (UCCE), and Trout

Unlimited (TU). Together we have made signficant strides in establishing a

scientific foundation to identify key reaches that could benefit from

grant-funded water conservation or storage projects. Please come join us on

Tuesday November 30th, 6:00pm at the Graton Community Club to hear the

following talks and learn about opportunities to potentially benefit from
