The Environmental Committee works to protect the watershed and to educate the public on forestry issues, erosion control, hazardous waste, recycling, and other issues. We also monitor government policies and procedures.
PG&E is a high priority for the Environmental Committee due to its massive and destructive felling of trees to prevent wildfires when unsafe, unreliable, antiquated equipment is the fundamental cause of the fires. From working on legislation and a new Franchise Agreement for PG&E in the County to in-depth research and analysis to support work with agencies affecting PG&E and helping folks protect their trees from PG&E’s contractors, this keeps the group busy. We work with a State-wide Utility Wildfire Prevention Taskforce on these issues.

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park
Main / Sycamore Grove Area
A memorial celebration for Fred McPherson will be held Sunday, June 23, at noon, in the main picnic/sycamore grove area of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. The Western Sycamores were one of Fred’s most beloved trees and this seems like a wonderful place to gather in his honor. Mention Fred’s memorial at the entrance kiosk and your parking fee will be waived.
This will be a potluck event. Most of Fred’s family members are vegetarians, so a vegetarian dish would be appropriate, but all food will be appreciated. In an effort to lessen our impact on the environment, please bring your own plates and utensils if possible.
Come bring your stories and fond memories to share and celebrate Fred’s life with family and friends.
If you have any questions, call (831) 338-0815.
