Conservation initiative: Permanently Protecting the Berryessa Snow Mountain Region. The
Berryessa Snow Mountain region of northern California is one of the
most biologically diverse, yet least known, regions of the state.
Located less than one hundred miles from the Sacramento and Bay Area
metropolitan regions, the area is a dazzling outdoor wonderland rich in
unique natural features and loaded with recreational opportunities.
Visitors can find California’s second-largest population of wintering
bald eagles, float the thrilling rapids of wild and scenic Cache Creek,
witness herds of wild Tule elk, and catch a glimpse of black bears.
Opportunities for hiking, camping, botany, birding, hunting, and
horseback riding abound. The area stretches over 100 miles from blue
oak woodlands near Putah Creek in the south to the sub-alpine habitat
of Snow Mountain Wilderness to the north. For more information

Next Meeting: Measure L Town Hall Forum
On at 6 p.m. on Wednesday May 14 Lake
Group is partnering with the Lake County Chamber of Commerce to host a
Town Hall meeting on Measure L, the countywide half-cent sales tax to
preserve and restore our waterways, especially Clear Lake. The Measure
will appear on the June 3, 2014 ballot, and will require a two-thirds
majority for passage.
This free public forum will be held in the Board of Supervisors Chamber
in the Courthouse in Lakeport. Scott DeLeon, head of the Department of
Water Resources, will describe the Measure’s objectives, the specific
programs it will fund, and its built-in guarantees to ensure that the
money will be spent as intended. The presentation will be followed by a
Q&A session. All Lake Group members and other concerned
members of the public are encouraged to attend.
Additional Town Hall meetings, all starting at 6PM, are also scheduled:
