The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino Area Parks Association:
ENVIRONMENTAL PARTNERSHIP PICNIC
Sunday June 12, 2022 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Greenwood Community Center, Elk
For many years, coast-based environmental organizations (California Native Plant Society, Dorothy King Young Chapter; Mendocino Land Trust; MendoParks; and Mendocino Coast Audubon Society) have taken turns hosting an annual meeting and potluck dinner. This event has traditionally been held indoors in March, but this year it was delayed due to concerns about COVID, and moved to an outdoor setting.
The Mendocino Coast Audubon is hosting this year’s event, and the Noyo Marine Science Center has been invited to join us. We will meet at the Greenwood Community Center (6129 S Highway 1 Elk, CA 95432) in Elk for an outdoor potluck picnic next to the community bread oven. If the weather is unfavorable, we can move inside.
Bring a dish to share with the other participants and whatever you wish to drink. Please also bring your own plates and utensils.
There is no charge for this event.
After lunch, the meeting will begin with brief presentations from each organization summarizing their goals and achievements for the year. Additional presentations may be made to describe major projects that the participating organizations are involved with. After that, we will present the Matt Coleman Environmental Service Award to a recipient whose efforts have made a difference to our community. This year’s recipient is someone well known to many, so we hope you will join us for a great party in celebration.
