Conservation District sponsors Coastside water “Blue Circle” meeting

Posted by on Fri, March 24, 2006


The county Resource Conservation District invites Coastsiers to the first Blue Circle meeting in San Mateo County.  Sponsored by the SMC RCD, The Blue Circle is a quarterly community forum for sharing ideas, information and resources for the goal of natural resource management, education, and stewardship.

The meeting is at 3:00pm on Thursday, March 30, 2006.  It will be held at the Harbor House in Princeton [map].

The program is titled, "Coastside Water—Then and Now—How did we get here, where are we going:  A detailed historical perspective".

This informal talk includes speakers Hank Sciaroni, Retired Farm Advisor, University of California; Farmer John Muller, Half Moon Bay; and Al Wanger, California Coastal Commission.  A Blue Circle Social featuring food, beer, wine, and a raffle will follow.

The organizers promise "no agenda, no minutes, no action items.  Check your guns at the door and enjoy the company of like-minded people who care deeply about the resource future of San Mateo County."

We had a terrific event recently as the Pilarcitos Creek Watershed forum, held on a Sunday afternoon.  As challenging as it can be to make time on weekends, weekday events are simply out of the question for many working folks.  I hope this one can be aired on Ch. 6, at least, since so many interested folks cannot attend.
