The Many New Fans of the Smith River Estuary

We’ve been overwhelmed by the concern and support shown for the Smith River estuary, coming from all parts of the West. Combined with a great turnout (more than 100 people) for our presentation at HSU April 2, I’d say we have a constituency for change. Thanks to all.

Meanwhile, many people have asked what they can do. Pressure on agencies charged with enforcing laws to protect the Smith River estuary, and the people of the town of Smith River, is a good start. Here is a screen shot from the presentation. For some of these sources you may have to dig for additional info or scamper up the chain of command. Let us know what you find out: And thanks.

More soon.
