General Meeting


A Call To Unite -- How We Can Help Protect The Sierras

Bob Brister, Outreach Coordinator for the Sierra Nevada Forest Protection Campaign, will be speaking at our August General Meeting about the problems facing the Sierra Nevada Forest ecosystem and proposed solutions. Please come support our wilderness on August 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Felicia Mahood Center, 11338 Santa Monica Blvd.(at Corinth, three blocks west of the 405 freeway).

Bob will show and discuss a slide show, "Saving Sierra Forests," that examines the problems facing the Sierra Nevada Forest ecosystem and cites recommendations for new management practices to protect the ancient forests, forested watersheds and biologically sensitive areas of the Sierra Nevada. This is especially timely because the management plan for the Sierras is currently being revised. The outcome will affect logging and forest protection in the Sierra Nevada for years to come.

The Sierra Nevada Forest Protection Campaign is a coalition of about 50 local, regional, and national groups working to permanently protect the remaining ancient forests, wild lands, wild rivers, and other biologically important areas of the Sierra Nevada. They organize conservationists to get involved in the Forest Service's regional planning process for the national forests of the Sierra Nevada. Bob presents his slide show to environmental and campus groups around California and western Nevada.
