Riparian Cleanup Opportunity

Lots of events coming up!

I received this through Surfrider Foundation. I can't figure out how to embed PDF's in here, so if you want the PDF, please email me at gardening@cnpssd.org.

Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Attached please find a brochure and agenda for the Subject Riparian Clean-up Event and Program (“Event”) scheduled for December 7, 2012 at the Rancho California Water District in Temecula, California.  The Event is a joint public service effort between the ABA Water Quality and Wetlands Committee (which I co-chair),  the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA), and the Rancho California Water District.  The clean-up and tree planting event, and the education program/lunch that will proceed it, will be held in Temecula, California at the Rancho California Water District Boardroom (and subsequently the Temecula Gorge) on Friday, December 7, 2012, from 11:30 to 3:00.    A write up about the Event is also provided on page 7 of the attached brochure for ACWA’s Fall Conference in San Diego.
As you can see from the attached, not only is this event a great way to give back to the environment in one of Southern California’s beautiful riparian locations, but it is also an excellent way to learn about Southern California watersheds and their policy, legal and technical challenges.  In addition to a free lunch, we will be offering up to one hour of free Continuing Legal Education Credit (CLE) for California attorneys in attendance,  and free transportation, between San Diego and Temecula (on a first come, first served basis), and from the Rancho California Water District to/from the cleanup site at the Temecula Gorge.  For those of you who coordinate large organizations (e.g., County Bar Association leadership; Environmental Group leaders; IRWM coordinators; GMs/Utility Directors, Watermasters, etc.), please pass this invitation on to anyone that you may think have an interest in attending within your respective organization(s).  Individuals interested in participating should RSVP to me directly so that I can get a consolidated count and ensure we have sufficient transportation resources and food available.  Please RSVP as soon as possible, but no later than 5:00 P.M. on December 5, to jjungreis@rutan.com or at (714) 338-1882.  RSVPs should include information on whether you will require transportation from the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego (details in the attached brochure), and whether you will require CLE credit.
            This will be a fun event, rain or shine, that brings people who care about watersheds together from all sides of the political and interest spectrum to do something good for the environment (and to learn about our shared SoCal watersheds).  I hope you can join us.
