Cobb Area Council Forest Stewardship Committee Chair, Eliot Hurwitz
The Sierra Club Lake Group will host Seigler Springs Community Redevelopment Association Director and Cobb Area Council Forest Stewardship Committee Chair, Eliot Hurwitz, at their next community meeting on Thursday, March 23, 2023 at 6:00 PM. The discussion will be held via Zoom video conference and live-streamed on Facebook. The meeting is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required to attend via Zoom.
Hurwitz, who is also the newest member of the Sierra Club Lake Group executive committee, will discuss an innovative program to restore Cobb Mountain and its watershed. The Cobb Mt. Watershed Education and Restoration project has assembled a multi-disciplinary team to restore key creeks’ headwaters that feed Clear Lake. This unique, tribal-centric program combines the best riparian science, traditional ecological knowledge, landowner experience, and community process to facilitate long-term stewardship partnerships between tribal members and current landowners. The Blue Ribbon Committee for Clear Lake and the PG&E Nature Positive Innovations Fund funds the program.
“This exciting collaborative approach exhibits a model for other groups looking to address climate and community-related needs,” noted Sierra Club Lake Group President, Deb Sally.

Registrants will receive access information upon registration and a confirmation reminder the morning of the event.
