Bambi Versus the Bulldozer--A Sierra Club Forum on Our Coastal Redwoods

AT 7p.m. on Wednesday May 15, 2013 the Sierra Club Redwood Chapter and Sonoma Group are partnering with the Unitarian-Universalist Advocates for Social Justice, Sonoma County Water Coalition, and Forests Unlimited to host a public forum on the magnificent coastal forests of California’s North Coast. The meeting will be held at the Glaser Center (547 Mendocino Avenue) in Santa Rosa, and is open to the public without charge.

The forum, titled “Bambi vs the Bulldozer,” will feature a presentation by Universit
y of California Extension Forest Advisor Greg Giusti on the Ecology of the Coastal Redwood Forest. Most Sonoma and Mendocino residents live along the Highway101 corridor, and may not be fully aware of the fascinating plants and animals of the unique ecosystem just a little way to the west.: this is your opportunity to find out more about the marvels lying beyond our doorsteps.

After the main presentation, an expert panel including representatives from The Conservation Fund, Friends of the Gualala River, and Fish Friendly Farming will extend the discussion to the threats these remarkable forests face from things such as sprawling residential development and vineyard conversion, and the ways to ensure that resource conservation and economic development can coexist compatibly and sustainably. Our forests are the legacy of our children and grandchildren, and we all have a role to play in insuring their survival into the future.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
