We want as many people as possible to attend.”
Organized by the Salmon Restoration Association, there will be an exhibit hall featuring educational displays, salmon books (for sale), salmon advocacy postcards and petitions (to make a difference!) from Food & Water Watch, and lots of informational literature.
“We’ll have salmon cookies, Save the Tuna seaweed salad from Ocean Harvest Sea Vegetables, and lots of salmon treats from Harvest Market,” said Pfeiffer.
In addition, there will be speakers from local, tribal, and regional organizations working to restore salmon, salmon habitat and salmon waterways, including the Salmon Restoration Association, the Winnemem Wintu, the Mendocino Area Parks Association, the Mendocino Land Trust the Jughandle Creek Farm & Nature Center, the North Coast Fishing Association, and the California Conservation Corps.
