Shasta Environmental Alliance, a New Redding Organization

 

The Shasta Environmental Alliance (SEA) invites the public to learn about the goals and projects of this new environmental group at Redding Public Library Community Room on Monday, November 27 at 6 pm.  SEA was formed in order to have a stronger, united and organized voice in speaking out for environmental protections for the upper Sacramento River watershed.

SEA will discuss its current goals, including strengthening Redding’s weak Tree Ordinance, and ways that people can become involved with this organization to protect the environment of the upper Sacramento River watershed.

This evening also features a presentation by Ryan Henson, a Senior Policy Advisor of the California Wilderness Coalition, about threats to our public lands and wilderness areas including the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.  Henson is a local resident and is familiar with many environmental issues in northern California.  He has been an advocate for protecting our public lands for several decades.

Currently SEA is supported by 11 environmental and outdoor organizations including: California Native Plant Society, Sierra Club, Wintu Audubon, Trails and Bikeways Council of Greater Redding, California Wilderness Coalition, Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve, Streams and Greenways Alliance (SAGA), Friends of Oregon Gulch and Battle Creek Alliance among others.

This meeting will be held Monday, November 27, 6 pm at the Redding Public Library.  For more information, contact David Ledger at dledger@sbcglobal.net or 530-355-8542.

    Finally, a group of dedicated persons who will be local watchdogs for our north state environment. Growth is fine, but we must preserve what we consider our reason for moving here in the first place; trees, clean air and open space. Those are reasons that cannot be replaced once removed.

    Way to go David and SEA!! United, we can do big things! Don and I will be at the meeting!

  3. Bob Madison says:

    I plan on attending the meeting. Hearing from the many groups that support different aspects of the environment will create more understanding for the whole of the Upper Sac Watershed.

  4. Chris Harvey says:

    Having lived in this beautiful area for most of sixty years, I’m all for smart, we’ll-planned growth which values Redding’s unique outdoor environment. I will definitely attend this first meeting of the Shasta Environmentsl Alliance.

    On a similar note (short notice, I know, but often these messages arrive the day AFTER the event!…at least there is still time to attend this one, maybe, today happens to be Wed. Nov 15?? Check out their web page, I guess):

    This Place Matters
    Posted: 15 Nov 2017 06:23 AM PST
    This Place Matters Redding is a movement that was formed in summer 2017 under the leadership of the Shasta Historical Society, Shasta County Arts Council, Sue Lang, Michael Kuker and Debra Lucero to save the 108-year old Bell Rooms building on the south side of Shasta Street, just west of California Street. The movement “encourages and inspires on-going dialogue about the importance of place and preservation in all lives.”

    If you are interested in getting involved in This Place Matters Redding or want to know more about the Redding Cultural District, plan to attend a meeting on Tuesday, November 15, 2017 from 4-5:30 p.m. at Old City Hall in downtown Redding, CA.

    “Learn the history of Bell Rooms Block 13; discover how Cultural Assets Mapping can turn around our economy; pick up your SAVE BELL gear; witness the ringing of Old City Hall’s bell in honor of the Bell Rooms. Come see how THIS PLACE MATTERS to us. We don’t need another parking lot. The city’s own NEW not-yet-adopted Transportation Plan demonstrates this.”

    Among the supporters as of November 2017 are Mike Dahl, Ann Muir Corrin, Eddie McAllister, Ken Hill, Ellen Southard, Julie DePrada-Schott, Mike Rimbault, Debra Lucero, John Truitt, Sue Lang, Dottie Smith, Michael Kuker, Shasta Social Media, Gabriel Leete, Megan Conn, Viva Downtown, Shasta Living Streets, Redding Peace Officers Association, Axiom Repertory Theatre, Healthy Shasta, Redding Performing Arts Society, Doors Of Perception Art Collective, Shasta Historical Society, Turtle Bay Exploration Park and United Way of Northern California.

    Thanks, David for heading up this group. Way to go!

  7. Lang Dayton says:

    Over 30 years ago Middle Creek was all but destroyed as a spawning stream by massive erosion and resulting stream siltation caused by careless residential construction along its upper watershed. The stream was subsequently partially restored at immense cost to taxpayers [over $3 million dollars], far more than the cost of adequate erosion control would have been.

    The Shasta Environmental Alliance (SEA) is one of the newer nonprofit advocacy groups whose mission is to protect the health of our streams for people and wildlife. If you are concerned about the health of our streams and water supplies or want to be part of the solution, come to this meeting.
