Your support today will help us keep our waterways, open spaces, and parks healthy, eliminate toxics from schools, provide access to more affordable housing into our urban cores, and help us elect community leaders who are ready to fight for a more sustainable and more equitable future for everyone.
Fire Resilience and Preparedness
Resiliency in a wildfire prone area means following fire safe practices around homes. Important work in protecting homes from wildfires remains to be done. For many years, CAFÉ and SCCA have played a key role in accountability and innovation to ensure our community’s long-standing history of environmental innovation. Our outreach in the fire prevention arena helps local residents understand defensible space and vegetation management options.
August 20th Russian River Canoe Trip
Spend an amazing late afternoon paddling a 6-mile stretch of the middle reach of the Russian River with Don McEnhill, our Russian Riverkeeper, and Larry Laba, the host, guide and owner of Russian River Adventures. This is the 11th annual Riverkeeper float that Don and Larry have donated to SCCA. It is always popular, and you will come away with an appreciation of how many different environmental issues affect the jewel of Sonoma County, and what Don is doing, and what you can do.
We’ll meet at Wohler Bridge at 3 pm … socially distant bus shuttling to a private launch site off Westside Road, and we’ll paddle back to Wohler in 2-man SOAR Inflatable canoes. It is usually hot when we launch and cool when we finish, so wear your swim shorts, good hat, sunscreen, and llghtweight layers, a good snack and water. Join us as we celebrate this long partnership between the SCCA and the Russian Riverkeeper.
There is a great possibility of seeing excellent bird life, and over the years of offering the SCCA float, participants have seen bald eagles, river otter and bobcat. Who knows what we will see!
Join us for a very fun and enjoyable paddle with like-minded people who truly care about Sonoma County’s rivers, mountains, corridors, and green spaces.
NOTE: Limit 30 persons. Sliding scale for kids, students.
