I for one welcome our new owners who see the value and will continue the paper as is with Vesta at the helm for a while yet! It’s actually quite happy news:Sonoma Media Investments (owners of, among other things, the Press Democrat) has acquired the Sonoma County Gazette. This means that the paper will continue and allow Vesta, after a year of transition, to gradually go on to her next adventures.

Richard Seaman, who singlehandedly started Fire Safe Camp Meeker (FSCM) from nothing, has stepped away from that role. The good news here is that the good work FSCM did under his aegis has acquired its own momentum, with the successful application for a grant to create a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).LandPaths, our Sonoma County conservation nonprofit heroes, have completed their acquisition of Ocean Song, a 400-acre jewel off Coleman Valley Road.

The study of Dutch Bill Creek by biologists and many others (probably too many to list) with respect to the goal of protecting the habitat of the endangered Coho Salmon (and therefore also Steelhead trout and other salmonid species). This is that column. I will confess right away, and cheerfully, that I have gotten the bulk of my information from one masterful, comprehensive document: it is entitled “Dutch Bill Creek Streamflow Improvement Plan”. It can be found on the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center (OAEC) website: https://oaec.org/publications/dutch-bill-creek-streamflow-improvement-plan.

If you’re like me, you are proud of the defensible space work you’ve done, and humbled by the amount yet to do. Don’t lose momentum! Last month at the regular monthly CMRPD Board meeting, fish biologist Elizabeth Ruiz of the Russian River Salmon and Steelhead Monitoring Program gave a presentation showing the positive effects of this year’s stream augmentation efforts.
