#8 On the road
with James Taylor and Jackson Browne!

Hello Guacamoles!
We are back on our “virtual road trip”, along with Jackson Browne and James Taylor, meeting the inspiring non-profit organizations that are tabling at each concert on the tour!  Our very own Guacamole, Paula, is coordinating this tabling, and we all – the artists, the organizations, and the rest of us Guacamoles – give her our profound gratitude for this tireless work to let concert-goers know of the good work for a better world taking place right in their own community.  If you’re able to attend a show, please stop by and ask these organizations how you can help!
On October 22nd, we are in West Valley City, Utah, with HEAL Utah.  The Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah (HEAL Utah) protects public health and the environment from dirty, toxic, and nuclear energy threats. Since 1999, HEAL has filled an essential role in Utah, addressing serious environmental and public health issues in local communities and state-wide. Our primary topics include clean air, energy and climate, and radioactive waste. We take well-researched legislative, regulatory, and individual responsibility approaches to create tangible change and then rely on grassroots action to make it happen for each of our core issues. Learn more about their work at: www.healutah.org
The next night, October 23rd, we go to Boise, Idaho and meet ­­­Western Watersheds Project.  Western Watersheds Project is a nonprofit environmental conservation group with 1,500 members founded in 1993 and has field offices in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and California. We work to influence and improve public lands management throughout the West with a primary focus on the negative impacts of livestock grazing on 250 million acres of western public lands, including harm to ecological, biological, cultural, historic, archeological, scenic resources, wilderness values, roadless areas, Wilderness Study Areas and designated Wilderness.  Get more information at: www.westernwatersheds.org
And on October 25th, we move on to Portland, Oregon, and visit with Willamette Riverkeeper. For 25 years, Willamette Riverkeeper has worked to protect and restore the Willamette River's water quality and habitat. Using the tenets of advocacy, research, and education the organization has carefully grown and expanded programming over the past 25 years to continually engage and educate residents of the Willamette River Basin. Today WR implements multiple programs including: Clean Water Act Enforcement, River Discovery, River Guardians, Habitat Restoration, Superfund Clean-Up, Research, and Willamette Water Trail Stewardship. Additionally, WR also owns and stewards 4 proprieties, encompassing over 350 acres of floodplain land, for public access and recreation. Learn more about them, and especially how you can volunteer for river clean-ups and other activities, at: www.willametteriverkeeper.org
We’ll rejoin you soon for the next tour stops!  Meantime, we hope you are as inspired as we are by these incredible grassroots groups!
Stay safe out there!
