From Rebecca Blair w/CfR:
I would like to thank everyone who responded to our call for additional River Helpers and to those who referred potential River Helpers. It is obvious you care and were concerned that we had enough River Helpers. Your concern is much appreciated and, thanks to your help, we were quickly able to "replenish" our River Helper team for the April retreat.
That said, I love that you act as CfR ambassadors, so please don't hesitate to encourage other potential River Helpers to apply online.
We are planning two retreats this year and hope to continue this in future years, making it likely we will need more River Helpers. You are the best!
The Western Rivers Conservancy will host a table tomorrow at the Spey-O-Rama at the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club. This three-day event is the world championship of Spey casting and brings together some of greatest two-handed casters from around the world.
Jim Cox, the WRC’s Director of Donor Relations, will be on hand at our table Friday and Saturday during the event. Please swing by and say hello, and we’ll fill you in on our current projects. In California, WRC has active projects on the Klamath River, Scott River, South Fork Antelope Creek, and the Little Sur, Mojave and Santa Margarita rivers.
When: April 21-23, 2017 (WRC on site April 21-22)
