Stuck in the Mud (1/25)
Learn about the watershed of the Pajaro River and how it is threatened. On Wednesday, January 25 at Cabrillo College Watsonville Center, the Santa Cruz Group of the Sierra Club will show the excellent video "Stuck in the Mud: The Pajaro River in Peril." After the screening, the Pajaro River Watershed Committee and other guests will provide updates of activities on the River and include the audience in a discussion of concerns and visions.
The program will focus on the themes of the video: the sediment problems from quarrying, flood protection issues downstream, the species of concern, public access to the river and water quality. The featured quest will be Dr. Robert Curry, fluvial geomorphologist, who will serve on the panel and respond to questions and comments.
Another special feature of the evening will be a Google Earth fly-away experience of the watershed.
This event is intended to bring together people from throughout the watershed to seek solutions for the challenges that face the communities of
the River. The meeting will start at 7:00 PM in the Forum Room. The event is free. There will be a reception with refreshments and displays.
Cabrillo College is located at 310 Union Street, Watsonville. For other information contact the Sierra Club at 831-426-HIKE.
