Mattole Restoration Council workshop series audio available

On Friday Nov. 18 at the Beginnings in Briceland the Mattole Restoration Council (MRC) held its Annual Meeting of the Membership. The event started at 10 a.m. and began with introductions, a series of workshops and a roundtable conversation covering a number of issues of concern in the Mattole Watershed. 
The MRC website describes the events following the workshops and roundtable conversation as follows:
Following the roundtable conversation will be the Mattole Restoration Council’s annual meeting of the membership. Members will receive updates on the organizations accomplishments, finances, and all candidates for seats on the Board of Directors are invited to make a statement regarding their interest in the organization. Working together all day is sure to work up quite an appetite so, starting at 6 PM we will be serving a lasagna dinner. This will be available for $15, or $10 for kids. A bake sale will provide a wide choice of desserts, with local beer and wine rounding out the delicious dining. Be sure to come prepared to bid on silent auction items donated by our generous supporters in the community. The nightcap celebration will be dancing and socializing with the tantalizing jazzy sound of the Latin Peppers. These skilled local musicians are sure to provide a vibrant sound track for a great time. Come and give thanks for a healthy watershed, dance, celebrate, and chart the future of our community based restoration effort!
