Western Rivers Conservancy Presentation Available

The FCO had their first Zoom presentation and Q & A hosted by Western Rivers Conservancy Director of Donor Relations and Club member, Jim Cox. Jim took us on a breathtaking trip to several of the spectacular rivers that WRC has worked to acquire and convey to public ownership. We learned about important conservation issues, restoration, and future plans for rivers that have great habitat worth protecting along with those where restoration and instream water benefits fish, wildlife and humans.
