Santa Maria River Healthy Watershed Initiative is main topic of North County Roundtable Thurs, July 8

We hope you’ll come to our North County Roundtable to hear about an exciting new project SBCAN is likely to get involved in – the Santa Maria River Healthy Watershed Initiative. 

Steph Wald from Creek Lands Conservation has asked SBCAN to become involved with the project. She will tell us what CLC has been doing and their desire to add new partners and get funding through a CalEPA Environmental Justice grant. She will ask us what we are most interested in doing. Come with your ideas for participating.
