The following message is from the Coquille Watershed Association and they are having Jerry Becker from The Wild Rivers Coast Heritage Land Trust as their guest speaker. It would be very advisable for those opposing the Bandon Marsh Expansion to be there to voice concerns about the Wild Rivers agenda of acquiring more land to turn into a mosquito swamp......Rob T.
Hope you are all doing well and looking forward to summer!
For this month’s Executive Council meeting on Monday the 24th at 7pm, we have a special guest; Mr. Jerry Becker, Executive Director of the Wild Rivers Coast Heritage Land Trust, and he will be speaking about “The History and Future of the Wild Rivers Land Trust - Protecting Lands that Enrich our Lives - our
Heritage Forests, Farms & Ranches ”. www.coquillewatershed.org
Executive Council meetings 4th Mondays. 7PM-9PM Coquille Community Bldg.
The community-based Wild Rivers Land Trust fosters the voluntary protection of scenic beauty & natural resources, conserves world-class salmon streams, heritage forests and oceanfront ranchlands, and safeguards a way-of-life that Americans cherish. Their service area begins at the Coquille River, flowing by beautiful Bandon-By-the-Sea's historic lighthouse, on southward to the ancient redwood trees towering across the headwaters of the Winchuck River in Oregon's Banana Belt. They offer land trust services to all watersheds and communities along 101 miles of breathtaking coastline replete with wild rivers, fishing villages, heritage forests.
We’ll hear from Mr. Becker first and have a short Q & A after and then a small break before we move on to regular business.
We’ve been very busy with the end of the fiscal year and getting prepared for the new Council Support grant from OWEB that begins in July. We’ll have some planning to do for the workplan that I need to submit to OWEB, so put on your thinking hats and let’s start deciding our priorities for the next biennium!
Hope to see you Monday night, let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for all you do!
