What’s happening with the Russian River? And with creek restoration in Windsor? Some of the answers will be presented on Thursday, October 22, at 7 p.m. at the Windsor Round Table Pizza, 8499 Old Redwood Hwy, when the Windsor Democratic Club hears from Bob Legge, the Policy and Outreach Coordinator for the Russian Riverkeeper organization.
The organization says of itself, “Inspiring the community to protect the Russian River since 1993!” As an advocacy organization, it has taken legal action against polluters to protect the River. It has called for mandatory water conservation to respond to our current drought, has pursued enforcement of sediment controls at construction sites, and has sought increased agency enforcement region-wide.
In November 2014, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors authorized a five-year agreement with Russian Riverkeeper, for creek bank restoration and riparian habitat mitigation in Windsor Creek, immediately downstream of Brooks Road South. The primary work for this project is in October of 2015, with additional maintenance and monitoring for four more years.
The meeting is free and open to the public. Pizza will be served.
