Conservation initiative: Permanently Protecting the Berryessa Snow Mountain Region. The
Berryessa Snow Mountain region of northern California is one of the
most biologically diverse, yet least known, regions of the state.
Located less than one hundred miles from the Sacramento and Bay Area
metropolitan regions, the area is a dazzling outdoor wonderland rich in
unique natural features and loaded with recreational opportunities.
Visitors can find California’s second-largest population of wintering
bald eagles, float the thrilling rapids of wild and scenic Cache Creek,
witness herds of wild Tule elk, and catch a glimpse of black bears.
Opportunities for hiking, camping, botany, birding, hunting, and
horseback riding abound. The area stretches over 100 miles from blue
oak woodlands near Putah Creek in the south to the sub-alpine habitat
of Snow Mountain Wilderness to the north. For more information

MEETING: 7PM on
State professor Jonah Raskin will take a long look at the "wilderness"
that distinctly American landscape that has shaped the national
character and the national literature, and discuss the ways that
Americans have viewed the wilderness and written about it in fiction,
non-fiction and poetry. Raskin's talk illustrates the multiplicity of
wilderness perspectives and suggests that if it has defined us we have
also defined it - and can redefine it, too. Raskin is the author of 14
books, some about farming and food, some about writers and their work,
some about families and friends. the meeting will be held at at the
Lower Lake Methodist Church Community Room, 16255 Second St. As always, the meeting is free and the public is invited: for more info contact Chair Ed Robey, email@example.com or 707 994 8304.
